This is Dr. David
I am a cancer doctor.
where was this cut out? from inside of your mouth?
the margins are positive.
the tumor was invading into surrounding skeletal muscle.
you need more testing like an MRI scan of your head and neck or a PET/CT scan
you need to see a chemotherapy doctor and a radiation oncology doctor
you may need chemotherapy and radiation to the area to make sure it doesn't come back.
it is stage T2NxMx
you need more imaging to scan your neck and the rest of the body to check for evidence of cancer spread.
your scan didn't include your neck lymph nodes.
yes, most likely it is in the early stages
but it sounds like you may need additional treatments like radiation with the possibility of added chemotherapy.
