My name is Gary, I am a 38 year old male living in the North West. At the beginning of this year I was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Cancer of the oral tongue. A biopsy was taken and the results were labeled at T3, T4 being terminal. I underwent surgery to remove the cancer, 1/3 of my tongue, two lymphoid and one tonsil were removed also. The removed tissue was then sent to the lab and tested for cancer so the doctors would know exactly how much radiation would be needed to stop the cancer. When the test results came back there was no cancer to be found…

Has any one else experienced something similar to this or know where I can go to find information about :confused:
