Hi, My name is Janice. I was told last May 2012, I had mucoepidermoid carcinoma primary sight unknown. Well, this May they found the primary sight, the base of my tongue. I'm told this is a rare cancer and having it in the tongue area is almost unheard of. I went to the tumor board last Friday to discuss my case. According to the Dr there, they have not had much experience with this cancer. "you are our teacher" not really what you want to hear from your onoclogist.
My simulation appt is next friday with radiation to begin 5-10 days after that.
I'm scared not really sure what is ahead of me. I'll keep my 3 f's close; family, friends and faith
