Hi, my boyfriend had jaw cancer when he was 16 and had all his teeth removed. He is now 41 and it is back. The doctors said it is stage 2 and he has started going for radiation therapy once a week. He says he is not worried but I am shattered at the news. Is stage 2 fatal? Will he recover quickly given his age? What can I do to help?
