How frustrating for you. At this point I think the rad onc, the onc and the ENT need to get together and discuss this. Hopefully soon someone who has been in your shoes will be here to give you some pointers and possibly piece of mind. Good luck to you.

What's the next step with pre-cancerous tissue? Watch, or cut out?

I am writing this on Monday morning and am scheduled to see my doc tomorrow afternoon. Before I saw him, I was hoping to find out what happened with others faced with this outcome and what their doctors recommended!
