Misdiagnosed - Bonkers

Oh No Associated with Head & Neck/Throat Cancer. Posted on October 29, 2018 View this journey (6 Experiences)

4/2005 It started with a lump in my throat that was believed to be caused from strep throat so I was given antibiotics. After about a month or so it did not go away so I was sent to an ENT specialist. She still believed it was from the strep throat so I was given stronger antibiotics. After waiting about another month it still didn't go away. She didn't believe it was cancer but told me the lump would have to be removed so I was scheduled for surgery (11/2005). After the surgery was over and I went back for my follow-up I was told they took a lump out of my neck the size of a lemon and I did have stage 4 cancer.
