Hey All!! LOVE YOU ALL, and am forever grateful for the love and support of this group.

Today I had a mouth CT (CB CT) and it alarmed the root canal Dr enough to tell me she thinks it's cancer in the jaw.

LOTS of problems, but this would be an AWFUL side effect of the radiation most likely, and I'm pretty freaked out.

Not even sure how to proceed here. Anyone experience similar?

Hi Michael. So sorry to hear about this.

It's been a few weeks since you posted. Can you share what was discovered?

I'm wondering if this is a recurrence or a new cancer? Long term effects from your first treatment?
