Patient Comments (1)

in 1984-1987 dr Foster removed a cancerous tumor from my mouth,followed by more surgery for neck tumors,then radiation to head and neck finally a radical neck dissection as the cancer had spread to several lymph nodes. My outlook at age 44 then was a 25% chance at surviving 5 years. I am now 75...more
