Dan, sounds good to me --- I grant you full Wizard of Wisdom status, good until revoked by those knowing more than we do.
Perhaps the answer is that non-cancer mass doesn't turn to cancer, but that mass that is cancer can, and does, upgrade, at least sometimes.
Which, if true, makes me wonder if a four is more likely to become a five, than a three is to become a four, or abnormal tissue, worthy of a two, is likely to become a three.
Thankfully, I've tanked up on a second stiff Bajan amber blessing since my first post above, and will soon be in shape to imagine all sorts of possibilities. Right now, however, I am dealing with a particularly disagreeable lion who has, (best I can tell) taken up residence under my bed making trips, at least safe trips, to the bathroom impossible. Unfortunately, the rum with fresh lime and splash of diet Coke, is settling in my bladder and making demands. Kegel be darned! The real 'exercise' is holding dry while avoiding lion infested bedrooms.
Sheldon AKA Sleepless --- and you'd be Sleepless too if your bladder was this full and you had a lion under YOUR bed.
