LCH -Langerhans cell histiocytosis in jaw

hello I hope somebody can answer me .I was diagnosed with LCH 1 month ago but I have it located only in my lower jaw? So they offer me radio or chemo therapy because its a big part of my jaw and they said the surgery its going to be not so easy and they have to cut maybe a little more of it.I am from Bulgaria and the more I read about this medical condition the more I think the better solution its surgery. Here the doctors also don't have any experience with that condition and I don't want to be their e

xperimental mouse.Is it here somebody who has that diagnose only in a bones or one located jaw bone,similar how is with me and can give me information about some expiriensed treatment or some clinic in Europe who have expiriance with LCH. I am 27 years old.

PS: I am sorry for my bad english

Hi, i am sorry you have this disease.my mom was recently diagnosed with this in her lungs. We are in the united states and know one here seems to know much about it either. Frkm what i have read it can affect many areas of the body. Please have your drs look in other areas of your body as well. Do you smoke? If so check your lungs too, your brain, and bones. Prayers for you.

They already made me I had already Computer tonographers and they probed my spinal cord and I am clean everywhere else witch is good. So I have this one located lower jaw bone.I already saw the regular information in internet about smoking and all. I just hope here can be somebody with same one located case as me. And can give me a advise if it's better to do directly surgery or try with treatment (witch I really don't want do it becouse of many reason and also there it's no garantire it ll works.)

And also in my case they told me my jaw it's in it's way to broke.

I hope your mother is gonna be okay :)
