Squamous cell cancer: Sorry to hear about it. The report is suggestive of type of cancer of head and neck. Prognosis depends on a lot of factors such as your general health, extent of disease, response and tolerance to treatment. Your primary care physician and oncologist can explain your prognosis better. Wish you speedy recovery.
