Currently going through the mill. Last year I had successful surgery for Prostate cancer (all removed) and thought I may have some respite. Maybe not. Have had a cough for about 6 weeks and then last week I noticed one tonsil large with the other still tiny. Ear pain on that side too and I am 53, non-smoker, non-drinker.
Seeing ENT on Friday but I think I have already put 2 and 2 together using dr google and am now fairly terrified! Of course I have no real idea if it tonsil, or from somewhere else but mind is racing.
Been looking at posts on here and if it is tonsil (or anywhere in mouth) then it seems an arduous journey and I am not sure I am up for the fight! I have literally just got myself back together after the Prostate problem. I am feeling very low.
Statistics don't seem that great either, 50% after 5 years? Or am I doing too much reading and people are getting better odds these days? I don't know, my mind is a mess...
Any words of encouragement welcome and sorry to sound so self-indulgent!
