I am a 15 year stage 3 IDC breast cancer with many lymphnodes affected.
I am writing wondering how many of you might have had lumps that were benign before finding out you actually had cancer.
I have had many lumps and they too have affected my health but were dx'd benign and some not removed because doctors felt not necessary. Happened in Breast that wasn't taken first time around. I have had lumps in right arm and all lumps I have found including my breast cancer and lymphnode lumps at very early stages the size of a pea. I find lumps because of the pain in that area and usually a lump there as well.
I now have lumps in my neck one big one at bottom of head left side and then one at my shoulder neck area and now experience much pain and pressure behind left eye. I am seeing someone as I always do but believe you me I do not rush in a anxiety way knowing I hate doctors and not eager to begin anything. I wait to make sure won't go away and I also wait and see if my health will be affected and most often pain and fatigue my constant companion.
I am interested and don't worry I am not worried have learned to take things in stride just interested since this seems to keep happening all these years later.
