Hi all, new to this, so not too sure where to post or where to introduce myself.
Am a 44 year old male, who until now has been healthy. Have been through. a roller coaster few weeks
about 6 weeks ago while having a shave I noticed the left side of my neck was swaollen, I left if for about 2 weeks, then when to see a dr (I was away with work, and accessibility to U.K. Med cover wasn't available) since my visit to the Dr, I have had a series of appointments to include an initial camera down the nose, into the throats where a lesion small was found then had the MRI, with some "sum cells taken by needle" from the lump, followed by a CT & MRI Scan, then Fri just gone, had a biopsy in Southampton.
Now the 2/3 week wait (as I was told on Fri) for a diognosis. not a lot of detail given so far, which I understand other than on Fri when I had the first mention of the C word, and what I may have.
not really too sure what to make of things, I am very practical and worry about work, future promotions etc, where as my partner, she worries about me, the kids, life etc.
I guess i hope to see how other people manage their journey to recovery, see their Experiances so I have an idea what to expect........
