    My friend had Melanoma spread to 1 lympnode.  That was removed.  She tried Yervoy, she could not handle more than one treatment due to side effects.  She had to do nothing for a couple of months while she recovered.  Her next PET scan showed tumor on lungs, she did radiation.  And three months ago started Opdivo every two weeks.   She had her new PET scan and its showed grown in the...

      Yes it does seem like you caught this early.  However, just remember that the tonsil is an organ and the lymph nodes are considered an organ, so you have a dangerous cancer - never forget that and do all you can.   In my opinion, and from what I have seen, the more aggressive you are able to be in your treatment, although it can be miserable, the better outcome you can have.   Ask your doctor...

        It is a matter of life and death.   There is a very great risk of your cancer spreading through the blood stream if you postpone your chemo and radiation.   The surgery part of your treatment only gets the localized cancer than can be seen by eye and PET scan.   Those other cancer cells looming around (and there can be lots of them) can and will travel through the blood stream making you...

          I am so sorry this is piecemeal information.   I am very certain that if you live near a Cancer Center, you should absolutely choose to be treated at that kind of facility.  Like Cancer Centers of America, for example.   Check what is near you locally if anything, or how far you would have to go to one.

            I said BRAT in my earlier response, that was not correct:  This is correct: Recent studies show that cetuximab and panitumumab do not work as well for tumors that have specific mutations, or changes, to a gene called RAS. ASCO recommends that all patients with metastatic colorectal cancer who may receive anti-EFGR therapy, such as cetuximab and panitumumab, have their tumors tested for RAS gene m...

              Sometimes the amount of problems depends on how long you had to wait for the reversal.   My husband's problems never ended, he took Laculose for the constipation for a long time.  It also keeps toxins out of the body and the liver.  Its a prescription medicine, it works well.   My husband was not able to get his reversed within the 3 month period, so we found out the hard way, he was doomed for ma...

                Anyone that is new on here, there is a radiation treatment done with "Varian Truebeam Linear Accelerator."   It looks amazing.  Anyone out here using this type of radiation.   Cancer in two lymph nodes as well.

                    Well, can't say its good news, just probably a different type of chemo cocktail that addresses stomach cancer cells instead of colon cancer cells  --   best to know that as quickly as possible. Sounds like she responded to a "colon" chemo if the tumors are shrinking --  keep me posted.   I am sorry you have any cancer at all to deal with -- I hope your wife can at least feel decent while she is ge...

                      That's interesting, so they know she has colon cancer because of a biopsy, not a PET scan or CAT scan?    So what they are saying is the only other place the colon cancer has spread to his her parentonel cavity, not her liver?
