The "Lump" is indeed cancer
Thursday, January 07, 2010
Well, my doctor just called with the results from the biopsy.
I'm really not surprised given that my mom and her mom both fought breast cancer. They were quite a bit older when they were diagnosed, however, my grandmother in her mid-70s and my mom in her mid-60s. Now me in my mid-50s. I guess my daughter should be eyeing her mid-40s with flags up.
I don't know what happens now. My doctor made an appointment with a surgeon for next Tuesday, so I suppose we'll go over all the options and what I'm looking at in terms of treatment, etc., at that time.
In the meantime, I want all my friends to know that I appreciate all well wishes and messages of good will and concern.
I may not know exactly what I'll be facing in the next few months, so all moral support is welcome!
