My sister was recently diagnosed with metastatic Squamous

Cell carcinoma. I had never heard of this type of cancer before her diagnosis. They believe the primary (where the cancer originated) is in the back of her throat which she is having a biopsy next week to confirm. Is anybody familiar with this cancer? What I've read about it is scary. I would love some imput

My husband was diagnosed on 8/7/15 with SCC of the right tonsil with two lymph nodes involved. He will start treatment in a couple of weeks. He feels fine at the moment and has no symptoms other than a very large tonsil and a slightly raspy voice. I have found this forum to be a great help. If you go under the "Head and Neck Cancer" section, you will find many who are walking or have walked this path. The treatment is indeed very harsh but the cancer is curable. May we all come out well on the other side! Blessings, Karen
