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.
