    Good Morning everyone:

    I am in a relationship and my better half has cancer on his left side of his neck which hurts him alittle bit. We are not sure what to expect next? Can anyone plz tell us what is nontoxic Nodular Gotter is? Is that the diagnoses? What would be the next step? His doc said more than likely he will have to do chemo and radiation. We are both very nervous about all this so if anyone has any info to share it would be greatly appreciated.

    By now I hope you have had some replies...I just saw your post today. You and your CO can try which is aZ support group for H & N cancers and has a very supportive and helpful group of members. Just log in and ask any questions you need to...I had squamus cell carcinoma of the larynx and after chemo, rad, and finally surgery I got more info from this group than any doctor.
    Best of luck to you both...Frank in NJ
