Went to my 3 month appt expecting NED but getting a tongue biopsy instead. It was my first visit without my wife as she had to stay home with our daughter who wasn't feeling well.
As soon as my doc started pokling around in my mouth I knew he saw something he didn't like. A small little legion was visible on the lower left tongue way in back. I got a shot in the mouth of numbing agent and then he maneuvered around for the biopsy. He kept telling me to open wider and relax my tongue more (easier said than done!).
I now to get wait 3-5 business days for results. He did say that he was just being cautious and that it can be any of a number of things. It'll be a tough week so please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.
This whole thing started well over 3 years ago when I was diagnosed SCC unknown primary. I had surgery only due to a very positive pathology report.
Hope you are all doing well in your fight and thanks for listening!
