I KNOW THAT CANCER IS A F*CKING BASTARD !!!In December 2010 my Dad was diagnosed with a very aggressive melanoma on his forehead - a little nothing that could hardly been seen. He had it cut out but they didn't get enough from around it so he landed up having to have a full skin graft on his forehead when they went back in and cut out more aggressively.
In late January 2011, he found a small lump on the side of his face in front of his ear. He went to the specialist and after lots of appointments with, it seemed like, a gazillion medical professionals, he had a radical neck dissection on 5 May 2011 where they removed the lump together with all the lymph nodes on the left hand side of his face and neck. After 6 weeks of radiation treatment and more scans etc the professor said it looked like they had got everything and he was good to go. About 5 or 6 weeks ago he had a PET scan and they gave him the all clear.
