As I said before, I had a biopsy on a lump in my neck and secondary cancer cells were found. I then had a MRI scan on my head, neck, mouth and face (with contrast) and a CT scan with contrast on my neck chest and abdomen a week later. I was then called the day after the scans to say that the CT scans of my neck, thorax, chest and abdomen were clear, but they think it is in the roof of my mouth and could I come in for a biopsy that day.
I see the head of the ENT dept who examines the roof of my mouth and also put more cameras down my nose as the MRI scan showed abnormalities in my pallette. The consultant could not see anything and thinks it is showing horrendous infection from my teeth as they are badly decomposed in my gums by the sight of the swelling on my neck.
The consultant has said that there are njo tumours present anywhere and he thinks it is a lesion about 0.5cm big that is a primary site somewhere in my mouth, possibly behind a rotten tooth.
Next week he is sending me for a PET scan to see if this reveals anything.
I am slightly worries that they might have missed something in my major organs or would that have already shown up?
Does all this sound quite positive if it is so small they cant find it?
