Though guidelines suggest screening starts at 50, researcher says it's premature to change them

Hi Fellow Warriors :)) As many of you know I'm a survivor (Squamous cell; Base of Tongue) approaching six years cancer free. Of course the typical post treatment effects, dry mouth, tongue pain, fatigue etc. but for the most part happily moving on. Even a clear Pet/CT this past April. Well, while brushing my teeth yesterday morning I noticed my left pupil dilation larger than my right. No other symptoms whatsoever. I see my MO later today but I was wondering if any of you had this happen and what it entailed. Thank you in advance for your help!

I hope and pray that you get a good report. I think we all "look over our shoulders." Being a "survivor" is the best news one can receive but it still is a daily struggle for my hubby. If he feels bad - we worry. We deal with being positive on a daily basis. This disease takes sooo much from us! We are in this battle together; this site is awesome! Hugs and prayers!!
