It's not quite oral cancer, but I think it's a good description (I related to a lot of it) and it has an encouraging outcome.
47 yr old male non-smoker, social drinker, fit. Jan'10, Stg3 rt tonsil+rt neck SCC, HPV+, rad+chmo Vancouver Cda. 2yr clear Apr'12 London UK. Apr'13 mets recur to lymph btw left lung & aorta, 3x Cisplatin+5FUchemo+20 rad, was all clear but 6-mo PET-CT shows mets to pleura around left lung, participating in St 1 trial of GDC-0980. GDC lost effect and ended July'14, bad atrial fibrillation requiring hospitalisation, start more standard chemo 10 Sep 2014.

This is all very true of how I felt when going through my cancer, my husband's cousin around the same age had the same cancer as this girl. It's scary. Thankfully she is fine today.. wink
