Squamous cell carcinoma at base of tongue

Just started radiation and chemo. Erbitux once a week, radiation daily 7 - 8 weeks (twice a day last 2 weeks if I get there), Carboplatin once every 3 weeks.

Previously had lung cancer in 2005. Chemo and radiation completed 12/2005. Lungs good now but doctors not very optimistic about prognosis for this one.

My primary care doc, an internist, had base of tongue SCC with nodal invovement on both sides of his neck. No surgery, chemo and radiation...same treatment plan you have. He is two years post-treatment and cancer free. Be OPTIMISTIC! Were I you I'd be more concerned about the Sooners thumping the Longhorns real good this year. Rich in Tulsa.

Hi Jodyman.I too was digagnosed with cancer at the base of the tongue.The tumor had taken over almost my entire tongue.I did not let them operate because they would have removed my tongue.They gave me no hope at all.That was 5 years ago and I am fine with no reaccurance.I had chemo and radiation and I can have sympathywith anyone that has to go thru this but you must keep the faith.The big man is in charge but we have to believe.Prayer is the best medicine there is and without it I would not be here.Stay strong,you are in my prayers.God bless you....Sassy
