Im new to fibro but guess what. I am in remission from a tumor. Anyhow here's a quick lesson....anything that is an abnormal growth (and tumors) is cancer. Whether it is cancerous or not is a completely different story. So, dont settle for those doctors and get into a teaching hospital. Why teaching hospitals? Cuz they have better equipment, new methods and SPECIALISTS.
Just so you know, this is how it went down for me: Woke up one morning super naseauted like I was in morning sickness but all preg tests shows negetive. Eye swollen shut, double vision when I hold eye open. In and out doctors, eye doctors for 2 weeks. The pain gets so bad it triggers a migraine and I curled into a fetal position on my bed and called the doctor again, cried so much they gave me an emergency appointment. I go in, I tell the doctor to kill me. She decides to sedate me with nice pain killers and nasea meds then call the hospital to talk to doctors to see what to do. She sends me for an MRI to the hospital. Failed MRI, hospitalized 1 week. Stump hospital, get a referral to a teaching hospital that has state of art technology and specialists. See a specialist, get a emergency biopsy and another week in hospital. Find out about the tumor, get into chemo and radiation then go in remission. So thats my story, I'll spare the horrid details LOL.
You need a biopsy. Til then, dont scare yourself and pray.
