I am afraid the great folks here won't find your post so thought I would start a new thread for you so people can respond with all of the help they give. Please retell your story and know that there are many treatments to help you but first take some deep breaths and allow yourself time to get a firm diagnosis. Then you can start your journey and we will help in any way we can. Mary

Hi guys...here is D.Maggie original post:

Waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Hello everyone, and thank you all for being here for each other. I have just joined this
group so I dont know if I am posting this in the right place. If not, please advise.
Ok, Sigh* here goes, this is the first time i am saying this out loud so to speak.
I am a 63 yer old female living in Ontario, Canada. About a week before Christmas I found a small lump on my neck just below my chin. Another one came up beside it. As it was over
the holidays it was dificult to get a Dr's. appt. The after hours clinic nurse told me I had Gingavitis and gave me anti-biotics. After 3 series of different ones that did nothing
my doctor sent me for a biopsy. The results came back inconclusive but he had found another lump on my vocal cord. I have an appt. on April 12th to have a biopsy on this one.
In the meantime, my doctor had me go for a C.T. Scan which I did a week ago Monday. The results from that say that I have a mass in my chest cavity and also in my groin (right side) WOW! now what??...............

D. Maggie,
First of all I want to say welcome to a place we know you really don't want to be. I am not a Dr. ,but if I were you would certainly not have to wait until April 12th for a biopsy. Anytime a lump is found it should be biopsied asap.Then when a mass is found in the chest it should really be checked immediately. Maybe I am wrong in saying it,but I am so disappointed in the medical care of today. The patient has to wait what seems like forever for any results or action. All I can say is we are all behind you all the way and try not to worry if thats possible. John(FNHL-1-4A-5/10)
