The doctor called last night after hours with results from Matt's CT scan on Tuesday. He said that a 9mm spot showed up in the same area as on the PET scan and that it was on a lymph node. He is not 100% sure this is cancer, but doesn't want to take any chances. His words were, "I want to get agressive with this cancer before it gets agressive with you."
So, the plan from here....
The surgery will be rescheduled. We should know the date by the end of today. The surgery will be a more intrusive surgery including a selective neck dissection that will remove any lymph nodes that need to be taken out. He may also remove Matt's salivary gland, because of where the spot is on the scans.
This isn't quite the news we were hoping for, but still thankful the cancer seems to be localized. Thank you for your continued prayers.
