1 day ago · squamous cell in throat in Head & Neck Cancer

Just visited with my radiation oncologist and I am leaning toward a seven week treatment that requires one 15 minute treatment, five days per week. Considerable soreness in the throat is one of the more severe side effects, but it should abate shortly after treatment ends. This option is a cure for the cancer. The other option is less severe in side effects but would likely allow the cancer to return and be fatal if it does.

Thank you very much for your encouraging words and information. It is extremely heartening to hear of such success stories and gives me here-to-for unprecedented hope for long lasting survival. The only immune system treatment my oncologist is using is Opdivo, for whose success I am very anticipatory.

No mention was made in the biopsy report of HPV, so I am not sure this is relevant. Thank you for the feed back.

I have undergone radiation treatment on my left acetabulum and right humerus but not on my throat. I am anticipating the throat treatment will begin within two weeks.

Thank you for sharing your pictorial journey. They did a biopsy but no mention was made of HPV in the results. To make my situation even more of a challenge, I am also dealing with renal cell carcinoma, stage IV.

I have not had any radiation, at this point. I have a consultation scheduled with a radiation oncologist and find out his recommendations at that time.

Thank you for your information and hind sight. I will definitely keep it in mind when facing options.
