This is great, Mark!  Congratulations!

And thank you for posting it here.  You are giving hope to others who post here and others who merely "lurk," but read all the messages.  

Susan, 7+ years out and counting

Congrats, Mark!  I just reached 5 years, too, and the doctor told me that there was practically no chance of it returning to my tonsils.  He even used the other "C" word (viz., cured).  Not sure I'd go that far, but chances are slight of it returning.

Bill,

My ENT declared me cured at 2 years NED, but my radiation oncologist made me wait 5.  They both used that other C word, though, and released me from their care.
