    Harry,
    I am curious if you have had many dental surgerys? I have had so many I can't even count with horrible infections related to some of the surgeries. I have Squamous Cell Carcinoma (secondary cancer in my auxillary lymph nodes in my Left arm pit area.

    They haven't found the primary source of cancer (CUP =cancer unknown primary) I have known since April and have had 2 biopsy's from the nodes. I have no Insurance until January 2013 so I will be doing a 3rd PET/CT and MRI of breast again where they didn't find it was coming from.

    I had precancer of the tounge in 07 so when I saw your post it peaked my intrest, since the last surgeon thought this might be coming from my mouth neck area.

    This has been a very long year trying to do all the medical and $$$ & take care of myself & hubby. yada yada

    Guess I had better horde my #&%*##.
    Thanks
    K

      No, I haven't had a lot. I went to an oral surgeon a few weeks ago because I had a swollen jaw which appeared to be related to an abcessed tooth. The last time I saw the oral surgeon was over ten years ago when I had a wisdom tooth extracted.

      over 4 years ago

    Decision Point (Figuring out what is the primary source.): Figuring out where is the primary place, andwhere it is coming from, and what is the best choice of what to do. What doctor to go with and getting second and third opinions, that is what I have done. I don't want to lose everything we have worked for, for our retirement, so waiting for January is MY decision.

    Oh No (Health insurance issue): I have no insurance, but will start on January 2013. So can begin active care/treatment then. I have had 2 PET/CT scans and have seen doctors, so I have done something but just not any treatment/surgery yet. Cancer is a very expensive illness.
