      Sorry to hear that you are still hurting. I was diagnosed 11 months ago with tongue cancer and went through chemo and radiation that ended in December. After a couple of months, my left ear/jaw/tongue pain returned. PET scan in April revealed a nodule in my left lung, so more chemo starting Friday. The left ear/jaw/tongue pain is almost gone now, it just kind of went away on its own. I don't know what to expect with this next round of 3 chemo drugs - we shall see. I would love to hear what you find out about the pain and if it goes away. Man, I hope so! If you would like, we could exchange emails and you can keep me posted. Not too many people have the type of cancer we have, so it would be nice to talk to someone!

      I had a tonsil that was malignant. I have started getting cramps/pains in the throat. Mostly muscle cramp type pain, I have brought it up with the dr.s, they just say it's normal, and may or may not go away or get worse.

      Hope yours gets better!!

      sometimes when my feet give me pain (side effect of chemo that killed my cancer).... When my mind wants to complain.... I try to thank God for being alive to feel this pain... In the past six and half years I've been to wedding, held two great grandchildren, and will be welcoming more.... You haven't given much info regarding what the pain is andwhat your doctor has told you about it.
