So, about 9 months ago I had a tumor removed from my thigh. It was unclear exactly what it was but there was a high possibility that it was a form of sarcoma, so I was referred to a leading cancer hospital. They have been doing repeat scans every 3 months and pretty much just waiting for something to start growing.
A few weeks ago I noticed a small lump in my forearm. I was initially in denial and just hoped it would go away, it didn't. I decided finally to go to a local dr to see if they knew what it was. I was really hoping there was nothing there and they would say I am paranoid. They didn't. They tried to schedule an MRI for that afternoon and an appointment with a surgeon the next day, but I decided I'd be better off with my oncologist so I called him. The surgeon called back and after talking to him for about 15 minutes he scheduled scans for Tuesday. They are working me into the schedule. So now I'm just waiting. It sucks. I am pretty much just counting the hours until I will know something. I am not a very patient person.
If you are the praying type, please send some up for all those affected by cancer!
