SCC HPV+ on right tonsil and nodes treatment plan.
Hi all. My 70 year young husband has been diagnosed with SCC HPV+ on right tonsil, only detected by lump on neck. RO says N1. He will undergo 35 rounds of 70g radiation and was offered 2 cycles of cisplatin 3 weeks apart (standard care treatment). We understand that HPV+ responds very well to radiation, and given his age the cisplatin is not highly recommended. Anyone in his situation have similar decisions to make regarding treatment.
Thank you for sharing.
