My husband has been battling head and neck cancer for the past 4 years which has metastisised to the lungs. His last CAT scan shows a huge increase in a tumor in the right lung and his prognosis is now down to months. I would like to talk to someone going through similar stuff and how to handle it all.
I have a head and neck cancer,diagnosed 18 months ago. It is expected to metastesise to the lungs but this could be months or years away. Sorry I can't help you. My thoughts are with you.I hope that you get some help .
Hi Silly - He has head and neck cancer which has spread to the lungs. He is under palliative care. I have all the support teams organised. We only found out last Thursday about the approximate time he has to live so we are still digesting everything and very frightened and emotional.
The primary was base of tongue with secondaries in the lymph nodes around the neck. He underwent a radical neck dissection 4 years ago today followed by chemo and radiation. It metastisised to the lungs 18 months ago and he underwent 6 rounds of chemo starting in January this year. He contracted pheumonia at Easter and the chemo was stopped. He was bery ill and we nearly lost him then.
