Hello all, I am totally freaking out.
Over the last three weeks lumps started forming under my skin. The first one was under my scalp and a nurse told me that it was an ingrown hair and to apply a warm cloth to help. Then one showed up just to the left of my belly button. then one under my left breast. I alerted my oncologist and he felt them. There were only four (that i could feel at this time) I directly asked him if it was cancer and he said it was highly unlikely due to my previous cancer and the original CT and PET scans. He ordered me to get an ultrasound last Friday. I saw the images and they were about marble sized, right under the skin. My follow up was yesterday and basically confirmed that he believes that it has metastasized but still not absolute - I have a biopsy scheduled for tomorrow at 7am.
Since I noticed the first one i found near the belly button it is growing larger, the one on my chest as well...And I have now found one deep onder my rear end, one on my side one on my back and a second one on my scalp....WHAT is going on?!?!?
I am bothered that he didnt order a biopsy right away and had an ultrasound done immediately anyway but, it looks as though it is very aggressive and showing up all over. They stopped my Radiation where I was at 21 (9more to go) assuming that I am going to need an agressive chemo treatment.
I am really scared. Really scared. Does anyone know what this could be or is there even a slight chance that these is just something else besides Cancer again. I dont like my chances here. I dont know what to do..I was in the home stretch of my Rads and now this!!
This seems very bad.
