Hi Everyone,
I'm diagnosed with SCC at Tumor connecting with retromolar trigone, Biopsy report state Well-Differentiated Squamous Cell Carcinoma"

Mri report states: 3.5 cm length by 2.8 cm diameter of enhancement. Ramus of the Mandible is unremarkable with no Cortical erosion of altered bone marrow signal, no destruction of alveolus.

My H/Neck surgeon is skeptical about the surgery as he says it will be intensive due to Trismus already there and only 1 cm mouth opening available. He is consulting with radiologist and will advise his final decision but so far he says my jaw and lips dissection seems necessary as without this tumor will not be removed.

I would like to know if anyone else is going through same type of diagnosis and what their physician is suggesting? Or if anyone gone through same location tumor surgery so WHT were the results?

Thanks

You haven’t posted a follow up to what the doctors are choosing to do. I and many others have been through all this including the trismus that compromises so much in life. If you have specific questions I and others would like to try and help you with experience based answers. I think your post was overlooked because it was very general in nature, and any of us could write a several hundred page book about our experiences. The question and answer format of the board lends itself to asking more specific questions, and even many of them that can be answered one at a time about what to expect. Please post again so we can give you more detailed answers to your questions. B
