Reply to "Tongue Cancer Diagnosis"

Hello kimberly24, So sorry about your husbands news. I think the way to go is to attack it with everything. They say oral cancer is vasculor means it is very fast growing and we need to hit it hard. Kill those cells. They spread fast. I am happy that my husband is going through rad & chemo. Chances are this type of cancer will come back if not fought hard.

Take care

I wrote in a few weeks ago about my husbands tongue lesion. The 1st biopsy taken in office was inconclusive. Doctor then operated on him Tuesday and removed the part of lesion that was protruding outside of the normal tongue area. Pathologist in OR said there were no "Overt" signs of cancer. Went for post-op visit yesterday where Dr. told us it was cancer. She has now scheduled a surgery for 10 days from now to remove complete lesion plus a cuff of normal tissue around the lesion ad also doing a neck resection to remove lymph nodes. She said he is a T1-T2. She said that if nothing in lymph nodes no radiation will be needed. Does this sound like a reasonable way to proceed?
