Topic: My Own Little Scare

I've been kind of a little more quiet on here the last week or so as I dealt with my own little scare. Being the good nurse and dealing with all the recent cancer in our house, I was doing my monthly self-exam and found a rather large lump in my breast. Scared the living daylights out of me. Took me a few days to even get brave enough to make the appointment. So today while Mark was in chemo I went and had my mammo and an ultrasound done. I hadn't even told him what was going on.
And I am happy to say I panicked over nothing. I was feeling a medium sized cyst that is nothing to worry about at all. Thank God! I would have run screaming into the night if we had gotten a third diagnosis of cancer in one year. I would really think it was something in the water.
Thanks for letting shout out my relief!

Oh, Kris! So much more stress to deal with. I am so happy to hear it was just a cyst.

Kris...so glad to hear that everything is o.k.  Thanks for sharing this with us.  Caregivers wrapped up in the welfare of their loved ones too often neglect  their own health.  Excellent reminder to us all to be vigilant and conscientious of our own health.

Re: My Own Little Scare

Thank you everyone for your thoughts. It was rather scary and I am glad to say it is all for nothing.
Had a little rough yesterday after chemo, it's really starting to get to him. His numbers are still good enough to do chemo but his red blood cells are dropping so getting anemic....don't tell him but I switched him to PreNatal vitamins. They have a little more good stuff in them. He slept most of today. But we only have three more doses to go.

Kris,
I just responded to Sandy and am going to send my troll Dave's way for a tumor snack. He likes them! I will send him on to you, too, to munch on Mark's for dessert! He's probably feeling neglected as I haven't needed him lately.
Hugs,
