Cancer changed how I looked at life and I am just very happy to be alive
I wanted to introduce myself and let you all know I’m happy to help and support anyone else here! I’m a 46 year old pediatrician who had tongue cancer diagnosed 5 years ago. I’m a non-smoker and was HPV negative, so no one knows why I got this. I had multiple procedures and full treatment including a radical neck dissection, resection of tongue lesion and radiation and cisplatin chemotherapy. It was the biggest hell of my life but I am cancer free for 4 years now and despite some residual mild side effects, feel great! Am happy to talk about my experience with any of the above. I was treated at UCSD Moore’s Cancer Center. Cancer changed how I looked at life and I am just very happy to be alive.
