Radiation to/on the face?

Hello @RareC

I am going to post your question here so that all our members can see it and those who have experienced this can chime in.

RareC's question is:

Has anyone had radiation therapy on their face?😳

@RareC ,

Hi ,

my husband had radiation to his upper neck and throat area. First time was a low dose the second time was a high dose.

His lymph nodes from the back of the ear down were quite swollen requiring the treatments .

The team here in Kitchener are quite amazing.

What type of questions do you have?

When is your treatment booked?

It's not booked yet, we are waiting for results from Mt. Sinai. My tumor is slightly to the right between my eyes. That's what scares me.

@RareC my hubby @Nudge had several treatments of radiation to the face. I’ll have him chime in for you regarding his experience at Sunnybrook (they were awesome).

Hello @RareC

I’m sorry to hear of your treatment concern. I’ll briefly outline my journey, then please feel free to ask me anything.

My cancer is melanoma, and first appeared as a tumour formed under the skin in front of my right cheekbone. It eventually spread to my right temple. I underwent surgery to remove the tumours, followed by immunotherapy and then radiation.
