    What can I expect now?

    A mass 1.7 cen. was found on one side of my voice box, going in for a biopsy March 20th. What's next?

      I had (or have same condition). Went for surgery to remove, ending up having 2 surgerys, removing
      part of my voice box and one vocal cord and a large tumor, was set up for a 3rd surgery, after the Doc. reviewed what else he would have to remove he canceled the surgey, he didn't think it would be the best for me at my age (80) and recomended Radition treatment(which I was trying to avoid).
      I am now setting things up to start Chemo and Rad. Hope this may give you some insight on what may be next. Good luck with what ever route you may take.
