    Got a CT scan on Tuesday to see if tumor on the back of my head penetrated my skull and was squatting in my brain.... IT IS NOT!! My skull is intact. Now we can proceed with surgery!!!

    hard road coming, but nowhere near as hard as brain cancer... i'm so relieved...

    (yesterday i had the horrible imagined sensation of being able to push my finger through a tumor in my skull into my brain... i was just waking up when it flashed through my mind. its been a tough 48 hours waiting for this news... lord i could use a nap.)

    Oh what a relief. I've been lurking on your FB page and your posts here on and off all day hoping to see some news!
    Hurray! :)
    I know it still sucks a lot, but so much less than a brain tumor!
    Bon courage for the surgery.

    Cancer is a terrible thing. A lot of it in my family. Both parents and their siblings. Glad to hear you don't have it! Awesome news!

    Thats great news. I had made the incorrect assumption that it was indeed brain cancer.

    So, what is it then, skull cancer?

    WooHoo! Good news.


    I had some of that on the left side of my forehead. The Mhos surgery took eight hours total but they got it all.

    My dad had cancer come up on the crown of his head that became golf ball size in a short time. Mhos surgery. They got it all.

    I would say the prognosis is good!

    Squamous cell cancer... I've know what kind since May 28 but i have almost zero desire to google it and read up on it... i knew that the type I have is the less aggressive of the types of squamous cell cancer that exist... it does sound pretty close to sasquatch cancer though, so that's nice.
