Hi Aoife,
I'm sorry to hear about your Grandad. I just wanted to tell you that I had throat cancer 3 years ago and I am now recovered. My cancer was very big when it was found, too big for surgery so I had chemo and radiotherapy. I am now cancer free. Hopefully things will go just as well with your Grandad. If you have any questions I will do my best to answer them,

Hi Noreen thanks so much for your reply. Hes is having a pet scan done this morning we'r hoping its hasn't spread. I had heard that cancer in the throut is less likely to spread i was wondering if you know if you had ever heard that? i hope you don't mind me asking. I am happy you recovered thank you for Your story you gave me some hope back.
Thanks again Aoife xxxx
