Hello again

Thanks for replies to previous posts. This is just a quick one to ask if anyone can explain the following terminology.

My dad hasn't really discussed things with us, but his notes say 'metastatic pharyngeal carcinoma'. I know this relates to his neck tumour but what do the other terms means?

Thanks in advance

I am almost certain that the phrase means that your dad has throat cancer that has spread to some other place in the body.

The first word means throat, second means "Spread" and the last means cancer.

You might ask the question in the ASK the EXPERTS forum, if you aren't sure.

love and fortitude
