Today it has been confirmed that I do have cancer.   I found out a week ago there was a 4 * 3 cm Tumor in my Throat.  The prognosis was unclear until today.  The good news is my chance of survival is good (80%).

They type of cancer I have is Squamous Cell Carcinoma, -Oropharyngeal –Tonsil. Almost certainly virally related (Human Papilloma Virus) HPV.

I seem to be lucky that although it is big it has not spread and given that I have not smoked, am young and have healthy lungs they should be able to operate.  Treatment plan to be worked out next Tuesday and neck and throat clinic.

Below is a cross section of Pet Scan showing where the cancer is.
