Ohkay. So we found out that my baby brother (2 yrs. old) has a tumor in his tongue. We have a biopsy scheduled in a week *i think*. They are going to take a piece of the tumor and find if it cancerous or just another benign tumor. I am really scared and nervous though. He's only 2! I need some advice on what to expect if it IS cancer, and what Chemotherapy or Radiation Therapy would do to him. Also, could tongue cancer spread? Does it have low/high survival rates? Nervous. *nervous because almost everyone on my mom's side had got cancer and died from it*
