Hi, my girlfriend at 30 got diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma yesterday on her neck below the ear. She had it a year ago on the tounge and had an operation and treatment for it. Unfortunately it has come back and we've been given two options. First one is to have the operation and remove as much as possible and blast it with chemo. This will involve taking muscles from other body parts and makes the operation more complicated. Or, secondly, blast with chemo first in hope to reduce the tumor then operate on it and finishing the course of treatment. I really don't know how to decide the best course of action. Or do we get a second opinion? Anyone who's been through this or has any idea would be greatly appreciated.
