If you are suffering from oral cancer you should ask your doctor(s) any and all questions you have about your diagnosis and prognosis. You should also follow the advice of your doctors about what to do next. Your doctors will recommend a treatment plan that may involve radiation, surgery, chemotherapy, or some combination of all three. It is most important that you understand the treatment options your doctor(s) are considering for you.
Lastly, don’t lose hope. Take advantage of any support services and groups that the cancer center or hospital may have available for you. You need to stay strong in mind, body and spirit, and it’s helpful to have a support system available to you at all stages of your treatment.
