Hello, I can tell you as an oncology nurse that those wounds are more common than you realize. Follow the advice of the oncologist and be vigilant in those dressing changes. It is never easy to do those wound changes. It seems everytime you remove that old bandage the wound morphs into a different shape and appearance. My heart goes out to you. Best of luck to you, Carm.

My grandfather has a large open wound on his neck due to radiation. Is this normal?
