James, have you looked into alternative therapies at all?? I'm thinking here of essiac. I hope these things are allowed discussion on the board.
You might also consider joining the coconut oil list on yahoo. There are a lot of very knowledgable people there.

Sometimes there are other methods to try. If you're not in a lot of pain, I would not give up, but would first look into alternatives.

Can anyone validate that if you do the X-ray with the dentist without the guard you can get throat cancer it is true?

James, It is often true that recurrent cancer of the voice box after chemotherapy and radiation therapy cannot be treated with more radiation therapy. It is also true that it is not always necessary to remove the entire voice box. Often we can perform partial laryngectomy and save a portion of the voice box that is very usable and still remove all of the tumor. If you want another evaluation, we would be happy to see you at the Mayo Clinic dept of otolaryngology for an evaluation and treatment.
