The reason being my husband was diagnosed with ACC on wed 4th August much to our shock because he had first gone to the doctors back in March as I noticed on my birthday that his smile had dropped. He was rushed into hospital with suspected stroke age After 2 day stay and what we believed to be thorough test he was discharged with Bells Paulsy. He basically walked out of hospital feeling so relieved and started to research about it.

After 6 weeks he felt it was getting worse with numbness and stinging sensation so he went to see a doctor. She asked if she could examine him, straight away she felt a small lump in his neck and she referred him to a consultant at the hospital straight away. The mean time my hubby was convinced it had something to do with dentist treatment he had previously had so he had an X-ray at his dentist which confirmed a small shadow.

The dentist advised him to take the X-ray with him to see the first consultant as he was sure his facial droop had nothing todo with his dentistry. So after a further stent of appointment after appointment he was diagnosed from the biopsy as having ACC. What was I to think! Their are four consultants dealing with my husband and they all say different things but all agree he has ACC.

Please did any one else take this long to diagnose and did you have any pain? Sending positive thoughts to all of you.
