Cancer of the tongue

18 Oct 2019 14:44

Hi Lee, I think I am in a similar position to you, having had a small lump in my tongue removed and the diagnosis being a high grade minor salivary gland cancer.  I was so sure it would be nothing serious so am a bit stunned. An MRI showed it has not spread yet and I am meeting the surgical team next week because not enough was removed the first time, so naturally I'm concerned how much will be taken this time and will eating or speech be affected.  I hope you'll accept my sympathy and whatever treatment is offered will sort the problem out.

Best wishes,
