I had stage 4 squamas cell carcinoma in July 2010. I had 90 to 95% of my tongue removed and replaced with my thigh. I also had a double neck dissection with cancer on the left side. They removed 38 cancer lyphnodes. I also had chemo ( CIsplatnim ) and radiation. I had 76 grey radiation.
Saturday night when i went to brush my teeth i noticed a white bump on the flap part of my tongue beside my real tongue. Sunday mourning when i brushed my teath i noticed my gums on the same side below the bump was hurting when i brushed my teath. That never happened the first time.
My question is has anyone heard of cancer coming back on the flap part of the tongue. My doctor is on vacation and my appointment is not until Aug 11. A lot of crazy thoughts will go through my head until then. LOL
