Last night I actually felt the lump .....It was about 4:00 in the morning & it's not all that small either.....It felt about pea sized, maybe bigger. After the extra mamogram & ultra sound I had Thursday they said I needed a biopsy..They dont explain a thing & handed me my walking papers till I go back for the exam....I didnt walk of course..nosy me wants to know if the exam will be like asperating a cist which I had done before...The nurse said no....This is a solid mass.
Last night I looked it up of course, being the nosy person I am.
One article said liquid mass...most likey not Cancer, solid mass, most likely Cancer.
This morning my stomach is wheezy, queasy, & I feel the fear setting in.
I'm not sure where this is leading except I suppose I needed to get it out.
I am not expecting very many people to respond as I feel many people are attempting to cold shoulder me out of TBD, but I'm taking a chance maybe I am wrong about that & people do care enough to wish me well...I'm being a big baby I know & some may think "Why should we care?"....
Thats a good question.....I'm not sure except I hope humanity is stronger than hate.
I'm sorry you have to go through this, caseyjo.
Know that your friends do care.
I am praying for your good health and peace of mind.
I know it's tough to keep a positive outlook caseyjo. But it's the best medicine possible right now.
PS. And don't let my experiences that I related in the PM spook you. Everybody is different.
Keep your chin up. They found a mass in my lung 2 years ago. I did a PET scan to check if it was "HOT" which would denote cancer. It was HOT. a 3.9 by their scale with a 4 being "Crack his chest and remove the mass" stuff. I went in for a needle Biopsy and even though my right lung collapsed after the biopsy, it turned out that this HOT mass was in fact, Benign.
Even if it is, it's early and you will be fine.
Thanks scooter. Thank goodness you are alright..What a horrible scare for you....I do believe I will be fine even if I do have to go through Chemo again..I had ovarian Cancer in 2004..stage 2-C...My Dad's wife had breast cancer & she had radiation & had to take some pills which made her skin sensitive for a year or two I think.
I am kind of figuring I will have to go through something like that, but hey..I still have a chance this thing is benign....I am hopeful....Thanks so much for your kind words.....I remember you from a post about a month ago, but I cant remember what it was about.
