My son has oral cancer. generally unwell and losing more and more weight

My son in his late thirties has oral cancer. it was undiagnosed for over 2 years. he has had a small tumour removed from his lower lip. will the 2 year delay mean the cancer is elsewhere in his body ? He is tired, generally unwell and losing more and more weight.

Hello
Thanks for nice query
Delay of two years in diagnosis is out of human control & unfortunate also. Only pet scan can tell about active metastasis else where. So talk to treating oncologist for PET scan
Hope I have answered your question well to your satisfaction. Wish you speedy complete recovery at the earliest.
