Tonsil with multiple lymph node involvement (all on one side of neck). HPV or not - was not tested apparently. Was told Stage 4. 7 weeks of rad and chemo (1x per week). Starting week 3. Feel the docs are evasive as to prognosis. One told me 90% 5-year sr, then changed it to 70%. Other doc when told said he agreed. Third doc really won't say.
Search on net turns up a real dismal prognosis for Stage 4, in addition to apparently a near certain reoccurence. Makes you wonder if it is worth going thru the treatment. Anyone have any links or sites with info. Thank you.
