hi I am a 16 month cancer survivor of the tongue, it was on the side of my tongue, lesion and tumor about 2cm. My doctor removed it and he cut into my neck and it did not spread. he said the tumor was patented? What does patented mean? I'm freaking out. yes I did quit smoking 3 months after surgery and started due to stress of an abusive relationship. now I'm finding it soooo hard to quit. I read that the cancer could come back in the throat or the lungs. I'm reading statistics and it's just freaking me out. Partly is because I started the evil s word up again, and I cry everyday because I feel I can't resist it. Even after what I went thru. My dad said you keep doing this and this time "your gonna die" I just need some comfort. I set a quit date and I intend on doing it nomatter what, but I feel hopeless. Worrying everyday and leaning on that stupid stick. But I'm glad i'm here. I have noone to talk to about this, and i dont bring it up anymore cuz it scares me so bad.
