... Against the odd after chemo and radiation of the lung and preventative radiation of the brain, he was given clean scans after treatment. A year almost the the date of the initial diagnosis, it has spread to his throat. It's frustrating that I can't find any info on his experience. Does anyone have any information on this?
I can give you a general response to the recurrence of cancer. Once you have cancer, you are more likely to have cancer again. It doesn't have to be the same cancer, it often recurs somewhere new. I hope your Dad was monitored at regular intervals after the 1st cancer was gone. After he gets a clean bill of health for this one, insist that he's tested for a recurrence at regular intervals. My husband is tested every 3 months, but he had pancreatic cancer and the length of time may vary with the type of cancer. In my opinion, a 2nd cancer is an excellent reason for Drs.to keep a close watch on your Dad from now on.
