Diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma. Waiting to schedule a total laryngectomy
Hi, all. I’m Ashley and I’m 31 years old. Last year I was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma on my vocal cords. I had 29 radiation treatments but the cancer was back 6 months later. In March I had a partial laryngectomy and it was discovered that I actually had mucoepidermoid carcinoma, not SCC. Within 4 months the cancer was back again. Right now I’m waiting to schedule a total laryngectomy, probably sometime in September.
