    Looking for answers about Toncil Cancer

    Can't find a sub group that has cancer of the tonsil. Not sure if I should be looking under Head and Neck or somewhere else?

      Hi, My husband has tonsil cancer. I could not find a sub group either. We follow the head/neck/throat group. I could not find a support group in our area either. This web site has been a great help to us. We did find good info about staging on the national cancer web site. Good Luck

      I had tonsil cancer and next month will mark two years for me. They say this particular cancer the first two years are most critical. My cancer was called Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the tonsil, stage 1V. This site has been helpful for me. Is there anything I can assist you with? I AM A SURVIVOR!!!

      I had SCC of the Tonsil also, and yes it is under the Head and Neck classification, with a sub-heading of Tonsil cancer. Let me know if I can answer any questions for you.

      First off, sorry for your diagnoses. It's a shocker to hear the "C" word!!
      My husband has his FINAL Radiation tomorrow for tonsil cancer specifically! He's had the most unbelievable journey so far. I can answer a lot of questions simply because of our baptism by fire!!! I, too, utilize the "head/neck" group for supports... There's no "tonsil" specific category that I've been able to find.
