I am new to this site. My husband has stage 4 BOT HPV 16 SCC with mets to 3 lymph nodes on the right and none on the left. He will be starting chemo and rads later this week or early next week. I have read so much on this site and am so nervous about the outcome of it all. Because he had all negative nodes on the left side of the neck they have said that they will not need to radiate that side. I am hoping this will decrease some of the short and long term conseqences of treatment Bottom line, the treatment scares me to death but I know I want the cancer to be erradicated. I have been reading posts on this site for several weeks and know that you are all brave and supportive. I only hope I can be as brave. Fear overcomes me at times.
