Nov 21, 2019 · squamous cell in throat in Head & Neck Cancer

I had a similar situation with a growth at the rear left top of tongue about the size of a pencil eraser. No therapy can done because I am on 24/7 oxygen and the mask they make will not fit over. If they had found any other squamish cell lumps or growths or tumours they would have considered radiation. I have my mouth checked by my dentist every 3 months as she was the doctor that found this originally. HPV can be removed because it is viral. I think that HPV is often present with ovarian cancer too.

I Decided to keep my house. I have hired a gardener who comes weekly to cut the grass and will on request trim/clean flower beds in front and back. He also does snow removal if the winter. I think this is much cheaper than condo fees and still gives me the convenience of living in a house as apposed to a crowded high rise. I have been doing this for 3 years.

Hello JazzJen………my oral cancer is in remission. I have respritory issues and am on oxygen 24/7. I found it took several months to adapt to the oxygen therapy. I do feel I need more sleep or should I say naps. My sleeping pattern has definitely changed. Give yourself some time to get used to the oxygen.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I wonder if primary doctors are still advising no need and after what age? Does this still happen?

Nov 12, 2018 · radiation burns in Cancer

Thanks Jackiemarie, It was the radiologist that said the treatments would be 30 min. each. I have spoken with a few people and they think this is an extra long time. The area is the head………it is presently on the left side of tongue near the back. Surgery to remove has been done. This is just to catch any cancer left behind.
