A Silent Epidemic

Head and Neck Cancer Caused by the HPV virus

Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck

The title of this page could change in the future.

I am putting together this page for a couple of reasons.  First, it will be used as a blog to update everyone on the progress my husband is making in his treatment of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck, specifically base of tongue (BOT) cancer, stage IVa.  I hope to chronicle from the start our experiences, from diagnosis to complete recovery.  Along the way, I will be posting links to websites I have found that I felt were very helpful with the information they provide.  I am also trying to spread the word on throat cancers in men (and women)  that are caused by the HPV virus, the same virus that causes cervical cancer in women.  If you have any information you would like posted, please feel free to email me your suggestions to asilentepidemic@gmail.com
