    I appreciate your response as well as the rest who have and will respond. I have no faith in the doctors but no nothing of what is going on at this point. They have not staged me if I am saying this correctly. They have performed several tests and stilllhave not told me anything I can wrap my head around. They are sending me to MDA in Houston blind. I will be looking things up but what I really want is them to get this Tumor out of my neck.  I think this is common among the newly diagnosis but the doctors are not making it any easier. My doctor recommended me to MDA because he was unsure of how to proceed but he gave me no other information. My oncologist seemed positive about the results but now is taking a step back. So the Stress builds. Sorry to all reading this and feeling my frustration but this is how my experience has been. I have been to places and done things no human wants to do with the military that were easier for me to deal with. This is something just out of reach and I don't have enough facts yet to make a decision
