Squamous cell neck mass
Have just been diagnosed with a squamous cell neck lump. Waiting for PET & CT scans to try and find where the primary cancer is. I have had no symptoms at all apart from this painless lump in my neck. Feel like I've been hit by a train at the moment. The consultant told me head and neck cancers are mostly common in smokers, heavy drinkers or people with poor dental hygiene but none of these apply to me. I've been on Dr Google- I know I shouldn't but its hard when you dont have a lot of information- and it's making me feel like screaming! I've already been thru breast cancer 7 years ago, which luckily hadn't metastasized and was treated with surgery and radiotherapy. This new cancer is nothing to do with that one. Has anyone else had experience - good or bad- of head /neck cancer?
