SCC, Tonsil

Hi all,

I am from India. I came to know that I have a tonsil cancer grade II, after my biopsy test. Can anyone suggest me how should I proceed. Till now:

1 - I had pain in my throat and could see a patch, so consulted an ENT specialist. Doc suggested for Biopsy.

2 - Biopsy done, report says -

a) Microscopic finding: Material submitted shows invasive carcinoma showing grade II nuclear changes and squamous differentiation.

I hope you can understand, I am little shaken and cant share it with my family. By the way I am 36, and used to smoke about 40 cigarettes a day. From last 3 months I was smoking only 4 to 5, which will be stopped by tomorrow.

Thanks all..

Hi I do not have cancer in tonsils,(mine was rare skin cancer) but I know the best people here for you to talk to are listed on the first page of this discussion board. Go to Head and Neck cancer and post your details again. They are wonderful people there and I know others from India have sort advice in that section. My brother is currently going through treatment for throat cancer,and I have learnt a lot from the kind people there. Good luck
