GETTING DIAGNOSIS IS KILLING ME

I have had ultrasound, throat scope, CAT scan and finally needle biospy.  SquaaSquamous Cell Carcinoma was found.  I am waiting for a Pet Scan and it is not scheduled till next week.  I fell like every test takes a week to get scheduled and I am becoming more and more aprenhensive.

 

Is there anything to do to make things move faster.  The cancer would found in a Lymph Node in my neck and I feel like the longer this takes the worse the cancer is getting.

I know waiting for the diagnosis and what stage and treament was the hardest part. Not that the treatment was hard enough too but appehension and waiting for a few weeks until the Oncologist appointment caused me a lot of anguish and I thank the cancer survival group helps me a lot.

 After 6 months of treatment I am cancer free for a year and expect to see my doctor every 3 months for checkups. Good luck in your continuous survival.
