Last week I found out the beast is back at my door stop, it's not as bad as the first time but its there.Had B.O.T and lung cancer at stage four.Rad/chemo one year and two months has passed with clean P.E.P scans and now the scan shows activity on anterior tongue at 2cm
and a value of 2.6.Yesterday M.R.I have not got results back--tomorrow is the day I will find out the method of treatment with a oral surgon. A little to soon for radation so cutting the lesion out is being thought or Laser which is prefered on my part.This is not a very good Christmas present, I'mm 78 and I will be dammed if throw in the towel.

It's obvious cancer picked the wrong person to mess with. I'm praying that they have the easiest form of treatment for you. Please keep us posted as to what the doctors decide.

Hang in there, hopefully it's been caught in time to just allow surgery (or laser), and observations after...

Best,
John

snap that towel and get rid of the spot, hanging on and using the towel is the way to go.
