Hi ladies, I need some insight. over the summer my dog hit the bottom part of my leg,right on the bone, with his leg, the pain was nauseating and it hurt like a bugger for a few days and I had a bruise and a bump, then it went away and I never thought about it anymore. Well, in the past few weeks the bump is back and it hurts and hurts to push on it. I am going to go to my family dr and see if he can get a bonescan ordered before I go to my onco in jan. I am a little nervous that it is cancerous. But am trying not to worry. Any insight?
Thanks a million.
Hugs from Tiger

Hey Tiger, you are too fierce to worry about al little lump.
I will pray for you. i think you are right to try to get bone
scan done right away. I wish I had insisted on my Family
dr. ordering mine when I was first diagnosed, but she
felt the oncologist should order it. then I would not
still be waiting for results now.
But when you have any mets. bumps etc are dangerous.
Best to check it out as soon as possible.

I enjoy all your posts so much. A long time ago as
a little girl and as a teenager I was one of those tourists
who invadeyour town in summer as my family
all loved to fish.
I live on a steep hilside in West Virginia with my
husband and 5 dogs.
hugs to you this new year

Tiger, think beautiful positive thoughts. I am praying for you. I really hate this ***** beast. Anything that happens to us our first thought is recurrence or mets. I'm glad you are taking the bull by the horns and getting something done right away. Love, Jane

Hi Tiger! It's Maggie, I will keep you in my prayers. The lump is probably nothing, but you are right by having a bone scan as soon as possible. I will not tell you not to worry, because I know what you are feeling like. Take care and let us know us soon as you know. Maggie

Hi Tiger: Aw, just go ahead and worry! But i won't. Won the bet on Maggie's lump, and I am on a winning streak! If you dont want to worry though, could remind yourself that worrying won't change anything, and the money is as good as in my pocket! Love Susan

Tiger ~ Just keep remembering the accident with your dog - perhaps something happened recently that you don't remember to cause it to flare up. I know I've had many bruises that I can't remember getting! I will keep you in my prayers for peace, Tiger. I hate how we immediately think recurrance when we have a pain. Please keep us posted!

Prayer and positive thoughts to you .. Jody

Dear Tiger = I am so glad that you are getting the lump checked out with a bone scan - because, yes, we never know and are always thinking the worst. Keep a positive attitude and my prayers are with you.
Love, Lucy

Dear Tiger. Have been away for 2 days so only just read your post. Try not to worry too much (some hopes I know) but you are right to get to have it scanned. Very often an injury site can develop a cyst and this is what this sounds like to me so that is what I am strongly praying for. It's so hard once you've had BC not to attribute everything to the ***** beast so the sooner your mind is at rest the better. I am praying for you my friend. Love & hugs. Pam
