    My Grandpa has Cancer. It's Squamous cell carcinoma. It's in his lymph nodes.

    We just found out it's cancer today. He is going back to the doctor on tuesday. I guess they need to run a bunch of tests now.

    :sigh:

    Re: Prayers Needed

    Gosh I am sooo pissed right now. :angry: :veryangry: :angry: :veryangry:

    My grandpa had a lump on his neck that was taken out a couple months before all of this. It was looked at by a pathologist and they were told it wasn't cancer... well they were wrong!!! His new doctor got the slides from the old doctor and it was cancer then too! So he's gone 6 months or so with cancer and never knew it!

    Now instead of a small surgery and radiation he is going to have to have a major surgery and radiation, unless the pet scan results show it has spread. We wont get those results till next week.

    I was already having a shitty day, but now I'm just more depressed than before. :tears:

    That is just terrible that they messed up like that. And because of their mistake it has progressed. Nothing can be done about that now, just got to keep looking forward. I am still praying all goes well with his tests and treatments. :pray:
    Tell him to keep positive, although it is hard to do at times like these, a positive attitude can have such a positve feedback when it comes to medical problems... "laughter is the best medicine" so they say. :thumbup:

    Stacey is right.. they aren't uncommon.. When my mom had to have one of her ovaries taken out, they almost took out the wrong one. It seems like doctors make more mistakes than the average person.. or maybe it is just because they are often mistakes affecting life...
    When I first got my ear infection a couple months back, the doctor perscribed this medicine, that made me so sick, I couldn't stand up without getting dizzy for months because of it, even though I only used it 2 weeks. The ear infection never went away, I told the doctor that, he called one day telling me its just water in my ears, he refuses to believe that I have an ear infection. I'm finally starting to get over it from a home remedy.

    :pray: I hope your grandfather makes it through this .
