Tonsil Cancer

I am 53 years old.  I was diagnosed with tonsil cancer last May 2018.  I don't want to bore everyone with my story, but I am willing to listen to yours and compare notes.  Feel free to contact me.  We all seem to now live in a community of friends that have the common ground of cancer of some sort.  Regardless of it's place or stage, all cancer sucks and is no joke.


Once again, I'm willing to talk, chat or all of the above.

Re: Tonsil Cancer

Hi @MarkM,


Welcome to this Online Community and thanks for reaching out. I see you have been chatting with others in other threads here.


I wanted to let you know about some resources you might find helpful if you haven't already seen them. As well as Cancer Council information on Head and Neck cancer, there is also a great website called Beyond Five which is focused on head and neck cancer. 


Contributing her experience of throat cancer, well-known ABC broadcaster Julie McCrossin features in a video on radiation treatment on the Beyond Five website. Julie also presents the wonderful Cancer Council podcast The Thing About Cancer.


Kind regards,
