Very sorry about the bad news Marcella - My SCC
was quite advanced - secondaries in my neck lymphs too.
These types of cancers (generally) are found earlier than others so survival rates higher.
The treatment of SCC by RT is most effective - so good news there.
Where was your biopsy taken from ? (if you don't mind me asking). I feel bad for you as I know how debilitating the stress is.
Make sure you have a good support network around you if poss.
Keep positive - success rates are good -
