My husband found an enlarged lymph node (quarter size) on his right neck back in September of 2008. He had no other symptoms. he went to his Dr. and the nurse examined him. She said to just wait and see if it enlarges. No tests/biopsy were done. He found it was enlarged a few months later. After going back they then did a biopsy and found the cells were atypical. After ct scans and other tests he was diagnosed with non-lymphoma. A radical neck disection was done. They found the cancer had started in his tonsils. He now is having chem/radiation. He is 50 years old. My question is this. Could this have been prevented if tests or at least a biopsy were performed initially? Thanks in advanceReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
