My friend has been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in the throat. We just got the biopsy results yesterday and its mentioned as malignant. He is 67Yrs old, non-smoker and non-drinker. He has a history of bloop pressure and diabetes (currenly on daily medicines and under control).
He started having coughs while eating since July. Also after a month or so he started coughing if he talks continuously for 10 mins+. He went to his regular clinic, ENT and Thyroid specialists...they all gave him different diagnosis and treatments.
Then last month, he spotted blood twice in his sputum and then we got a bit worried. Went to a big hospital chain where they did endoscopy and then biopsy. The tumor is at the juncture of food pipe and wind pipe (more inclined towards the food pipe). Today he is going to meet the radiologist and chemotherapist to discuss further tests/treatment. MRI/CT has not yet been taken so we are not sure in what stage it is now.
I will keep posted here about the tests we did and the results/treatment progress. Please pray for him and any advice, guidance would be of great help and support to us.
