I am new to this, so I am not really sure what to do. I am beyond thankful to have found this site. Just reading all of the posts give me great comfort. So yesterday my dad went to the hospital to get a golf ball size lump on his neck checked out. The results of a biopsy came back to be SCC. It is still very early in all of this, but my family is a hot mess. I would like to think that I am a strong person, but I am finding it hard to keep composure around my family. I am the most concerned about how my dad is taking it. He is 55, doesn't smoke, and works out regularly. The doctor thinks that HPV is in the picture. He is taking everything pretty hard and is very scared. I feel so helpless.. I just need some encouraging words. I am in the midst of getting my master's and am over 3 hours away from home. What is the best way to "be there" without physically being there.
Thank you so much for your time! Just getting this out has already helped so much!!
