Hello, I'm new to the forum and have been reading all the threads. I was just diagnosed with squamous cell cancer in my neck. The primary cannot be found, but I have had 9 lymph nodes removed on the right side of my neck with 2 of them cancerous. Right now I'm starting to go stir crazy waiting to see the oncologists on Friday. Then I can get a better idea of what treatment I will be having. This diagnosis was a shock to me as I'm 43 years old and have never been sick in my life. I've never missed more than 1 or 2 days of work at a time. I've been off for two weeks now, following the surgery, and have no idea when I'll be able to go back. Reading some of everyone's stories has let me realize that I'm not alone.
