How is your husband? Can you elaborate on the spots  and lump on the leg that you mentioned? Throat cancer refers to cancerous tumors that develop in the throat, voice box or tonsils. After treatment, follow-up exams every few months during the first two years is done to allow your doctor to monitor  recovery and check for a cancer recurrence. While such follow-up exams can increase anxiety around this time, it is recommended that you plan ahead by finding relaxing activities that can help redirect such fears. Discuss also the additional symptoms that you mentioned for proper evaluation. Additional diagnostic tests may also be requested. Take care and do keep us posted.

My husband Gary  doesn't complain about pain.  Actually his cancer was on his tongue also back of his throat too.  Dr. could not remove it by surgry.  He snores but not as bad.  He still has very bad breathe is that due to the cancer?
The lump is on his groin area.  Size of a quarter.  Very hard, no redness and doesn't seem to hurt.
Thank you so much for your comment

So far the tests have all came back good.  Dr. stated that kemo and radiation worked.
As far as the lump goes he needs to see his regular dr.
Thank you so much
