Biography

I'm Kevin, diagnosed October 30, 2012 with Tonsil Cancer. (Didn't even know there was such a thing.) After finding this site I don't feel so alone. Healing now from Tonsillectomy surgery on Novemder 14th (wow do things happen fast.) Soon to see Medical Oncologist and Radiology Oncologist for treatments, dont know exact dates yet. But yes I am scared of the unknown like i'm sure many of you are or were. That's one of the reasons why i'm now a member. Hope sometime soon I can be helpful as much as what I have read between many on this site so far. Thanks for having me as part of your community. Have only been diagnosed 3 weeks and have to admit CANCER REALLY SUCKS.

The Moment my ENT Dr. said

I HAVE IT, learning more everyday. It's gonna be a battle but I will beat this!

Be a friend, i'm not afraid to talk about my cancer (it's part of my life now) and understand that very soon i'll be going through some really tough times.

Support, knowledge and conversation. I love to talk, it takes my mind off of negative things in my life.

Swelling on right side of neck (Lymph nodes) swollen right tonsil. Went through antibiotics twice in 1 month. with no positive results. Sent to see E.N.T. Catscan next day DR. looks over scan and says your going in for surgery. a.s.a.p. Scared the living you know what out of me, because I figured it wasn't a good sign of things to come.
