I have to agree with some of the other paranoid people above. What the heck are you waiting for? Have surgery, radiation, seeds, cryo, hifu or something! How can you live with knowing that cancer is growing inside of you, no matter how slow? What is it spreads and surgery and radiation are no longer options? I can't believe you can deal with the stress of this disease hanging over your head, I know that I couldn't............
