My husband had a cervical lymph node that showed squamous cells via FNA. I still can't catch my breath and feel like the earth just disappeared under my feet. He has swollen left tonsil on the side of the lymph node and a cough.....but that is all. His bloodwork is perfect. I am petrified to find out what the primary site was. He is scheduled for a pet scan on Thursday and then OR scope/biopsies on Wed. Where can the primary be from????anywhere??? We are so scared. I forced myself to eat breakfast and then promptly threw it up. We are not coping well. Any info/support for dealing with the uncertainty of the primary site or what tests to ask for would be so helpful.
