Yesterday I had my appointment with the ENT at Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute. They first did the videostrobe of my throat, then the doctor came in and we went over it, everything looked great. He felt all around my neck and felt nothing, (the numbness has now gone) he said it has now been four years since treatment, and he will see me next July and if all is the same, he will consider mr cured and cut me loose. met with the Rad Onc last week and he said that to all extent and purpose he thinks it is now cured. So good news there. Denis

yes, excellent news. This 5 year finish line always seems pretty artitrary to me. Go for it and say I am CURED at 4, what the heck. In fact, after the two year mark NED you are pretty much "cured" according to many published data. Enjoy, don
