I saw one of my radiation Oncs today for a check up and told him about this lump I noticed around my breast/lower armpit area. He determined it was in the right breast at the 10 o'clock position. He said it was very soft and per-something or other.....I am doing a mammo on the right breast and an ultrasound on Thursday. He said if it were to be anything they would just cut it out and that would be that. But would it really? It's very small and not hard like my first one. He said I have cysts in my breast and this could be one too, but he wants to make sure. I was glad he didn't say let's wait and see b/c I may have said Ok, just b/c I don't want to go through anything right now. Only my DH and incredible Friend, Katie, know about this. UGH.....this just sucks. Can I ask for some porkchop bone vibes? It will actually have to be Chicken Wing bones, since I don't eat porkchops! Or maybe a celery stalk.....anything but a stupid cancerous tumor. Boy, do I have a long wait. Like I needed this around my birthday! GGGGRRRR.

Oh no Shelley not more waiting! You don't need this around your birthday or any other time! I will be sending out prayers for chicken wings, legs or anyother piece of poultry! Hang in there sweetie! L&H, Gail

Chicken wings, buffalo hot wings, chicken tenders- you got it!

Oh Shelley- I can't believe you have to be in waiting hell right now! Didn't your doc get the memo? You have done your time and are out on parole!!

Now about him just cutting it out and that would be it - when I had that tumor scare this summer I immediately said to my Breast Surgeon- so this means a mast right? And he said- like yours- IF it is anything we will just take it out. Another lumpectomy.

I am praying real hard for you! I don't know when your b'day is but my wish is you put this in some amnesia place and not think about it and just ENJOY another birthday!

Chicken bone vibes and booga booga dance....that is comparable to the nekkid candle dance...

Sorry you have to go through this yet again. Man, it sucks.... try to focus on something else and let us know when you need a little boost...we'll help you any time.

Oh Gees, let's go for a chicken nugget and hope it comes out real easy and all is well. You have been having a great last couple of months, I would like to see that continue. Hugs and prayers. MK

I'm praying for chicken wings, legs, gizzards, celery, or anything else that will go away easily and quickly, and never return.
