In 2000 I had a lump removed (partial) from my parotid gland. The removal was a partial because the ENT did not want to damage nerves in my face-after three days in the hospital, I was told that the lump was not cancer.
In 2001 I got a second opinion and was told after surgury that it was cancer and the new ENT was able to remove it without damage to the nerves. No treatment was done and in 2004 it returned. ANother surgury and this time 36 radiation treatments followed in late 2005.
I now get checked every 3 months and my life is upside down-I need to hear from someone with the same condition.
