I have been diagnosed with cancer in the Lympth nodes in my neck. And told this is a secondary cancer . This was done , by an ultrasound guiding a biopsy heels in my neck.
I have also had an CT scan of my chest and neck . But no cancer four . So no primary yet
Still waiting to see the Oncologist. Who I'm told will order a camera down my throat to see if the primary is there. I'm told it's a good bet . As I have a horse voice at the moment. And find it hard to sell low most of the time. My question is "Who's secondary cancer is in their lymph nodes ???

I'm new to this site. As I was diagnosed only a week ago
I had to lumps appear over night on my neck> So I went to the Dr. Who promptly sent me for an Ultra sound with FNA. After the Dr finished the Ultrasound with FNA. He asked when I see my GP next. I said in a few weeks. He said no , you will see him today or tomorrow . In fact I'll ring him now .
Next day I saw my GP and was told I have Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Is your secondary cancer .
So I had CT scan of my head and neck. But this found nothing. But with my symptoms of Sore throat, Loss of voice at times And hard to breath and swallow at other. I'm told it Looks like throat cancer.
But that will be for your Oncologist to deal with.
Now the wait and the tests begin.
I will try and contribute to this site. But I hope to learn and gather strength from here as well
