I just found out that my grandfather has cancer. He had a tumor on the side of his face, on his jaw. It had even gotten so big that it damaged the nerves in the left side of his face, so that his face droops on that side. His left eye doesn't ever even blink. His lip and cheek are droopy too. On Monday he had surgery to remove it. They couldn't get every bit of it. I think they had to leave like 10% of it, because they couldn't get passed his juggler vein. The doctor also said that it had already gotten into his bloodstream. He also has like redish looking places on his skin, like blotches. Does anyone know from this information what stage of the cancer he may be in? The doctor hasn't said yet, and I am really nervous. I am very close to my Grandfather. Thanks for any replies.
