Some days are really harder than others. Especially when you dream about cancer showing up again. How do you deal with it? My daughter, who is 8 now, was diagnosed with muco epidermoid carcinoma on June 6, 2012. She had surgery to remove the parotid gland and 33 rounds of radiation. I have several questions and I don't really understand all the doctors. I want to come out and say things like, What are the chances this will come back or will she develop another cancer from the radiation? I am terrified that when her PET Scan is done, something will show up. She is almost 2 years cancer free. It is almost time for scan #6, but I am just as nervous as scan #1. Will this go on forever? Does anyone have any experience with childhood radiation or muco epidermois carcinoma in a child?
