    Want to bump this up. I ran into someone at the pharmacy today that's fighting tonsil cancer. I told them about this thread.

        I knew something was wrong with her when she turned 15, her body started crashing, she lost 80lbs. Every time we turned around she had new symptoms. She would fall going up or down steps. This was back when my hub had cancer in 09. She had wisdom teeth extracted that wouldn't heal quick, and the oral surgeon couldn't knock her out to extract them. She also had a fractured wrist years ago that she said still hurt. At...

          Someone with Chiari or a connective tissue disorder should not have the vaccine because they have a higher risk of side effect that can't be reversed. What brain anomaly does she have?

            I never said her doctor was advising she not get it.

              Please be careful with the vaccine as not everyone should get it. We chose not to get it for my daughter because at the time she was maving a lot of medical issues which turned out to be Chiari Malformation with a connective tissue disorder along with heart issues. If a person has joint or muscle pain or suffers headaches, they should think twice before getting it.

                I'm glad that they know more about this cancer now then they did back in 09 when my hub fought. A few years ago someone that was married 50+ years had it too. Back then, a lot that had gotten it had a weakened immune system due to being sick, stress, not eating/ sleeping right. I'm usually a healthy person but have been getting the flu (knock wood) the last 2 or 3 years since nearing 50. I haven't gotten it this sea...

                  Sorry for how long it's taken me to get back here. For some reason I'm not able to type in the reply box from my cell. Glad he is recovering. My hub had his right tonsil, golf ball sized tumor plus a dozen lymph nodes and feeding tube; healed for a few weeks then did chemo & radiation. The feeding tube stayed in 6 months. He was very depressed because food tasted bad; so he wouldn't try to eat. What saved him was...

                      It's been years since I've been here. I had to step away from cancer. In 06 I lost my beloved dad to AML Leukemia as well as my father in law 6 weeks later from brain cancer that his Dr missed. Losing my dad helped me to make sure I would not lose my hub to HPV+ tonsil cancer. What freaked me out was when a beloved member here was 5 years clean for cancer; he tested positive for lung cancer. He was being treated by H...

                      The right doctors can make all the difference when it comes to treating cancer. So why don't we know who they are?

                      What You Don’t Know Might Kill You

                      Very interesting article on how not all cancer centers are the same. Long article but worth the read.

                      It also says to check if a center follows National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines....... .................

An oncologist whose life is dedicated to treating nothing but one cancer will have seen many more and very diverse cases than an oncologist who maybe has treated a few cases of the same cancer during his entire career.

                      It is also true that an oncologist who devotes his entire career to patients with your cancer, will usually have better results than an oncologist who doesn't, just because he has more knowledge.
