8/31/12: My ENT called with the biopsy results this afternoon…squamous cell carcinoma on the base of my tongue. I won’t know anything more until further testing is completed, a PET scan next Wednesday and an esophagogastroduodenoscopy on September 13. He said he was very surprised because the spot did not look like cancer.
This is where I’m supposed to say, “Oh, another bump in the road – we’ll beat this, too.” But I’m too upset and angry at the unfairness of it all to say much of anything right now.
I’ll post more when the rest of the results are in.
