another biopsy scheduled

So, it was squamous cell carcinoma of the lip a few weeks ago which was completely removed (according to the perky twelve year old nurse).

I let Jim go to ONE appointment without me because I had spinal fusion surgery - just ONE appointment, mind you - and he ends up having a special scan because something looks suspicious in his hypopharyngeal area (where original Stage 4 was found and treated and cured three years ago this month).  We went for a follow up to the special scan and now have a biopsy scheduled for this coming Monday, 26 August.

Asking for prayers and good thoughts.  Maybe this is just scar(e) tissue and the doctor is being overly cautious.

I pray the area is scar tissue and I pray for you both to be comforted as you await the results.

Positive thoughts and prayers that everything will remain in check and it's nothing serious.

Only the very best outcomes for you. Better have cautious docs than ones who keep saying "nothing to worry about". don

It's amazing how we look at situations the same.  Sometimes, the younger proffessionals don't get it !  But I sure chuckled at the 12 yr. old nurse senerio !  Prayers and strong thoughts for both of you for a good outcome.  Katie
