    Oh No

    Was diagnosed on April 19, 2012 with inter-ear stage 2 squamous cell carcinoma. I just sat there as the doctor did not even look me in the eye just said, very non=shalantly, "so, you have stage 2 squamous cell carcinoma', no emotion nothing else, just that then he said " any questions?" I just sat kind of blank then replied in utter disbelief or denial, " like cancer, cancer the kind people die from?" He never looked up and said simply ' Yes".
