Waiting to do biopsy

After feeling two small bumps on my lower abdominal area and having a CT yesterday, my onc. has reported that several lymph nodes are slightly enlarged. I now have to do a biopsy to see if it is cancer. My liver looks great as do all the other organs. I am so nervous about the biopsy and fear having to start chemo again. It has only been three months since chemo ended and I have been feeling great. I am trying to stay positive...

Hugs,
Sara

    I know it's tough not to be worried about the lymph nodes. I will be keeping you in my prayers and hope for a good outcome for you. Hang in there and try to stay busy to help keep the worrying down as much as possible. HUGS

    Sorry
    Hoping that this swelling is due to some infection or something not serious. You are in my thoughts.

    Sara,

    I read this and your other post with much concern. I don't have any particular words of wisdom. Perhaps the lymph nodes are from some minor infection (UTI maybe???). I am happy to hear that all the organs are clear and that your liver looks great. Please keep us posted as to the biopsy results.

    As you know, I keep you in my prayers, tonight and every night.

    Sara:
    At this point it could be almost anything, not necessarily cancer, but to ease you mind get the biopsy, don't put it off. If it is anything of concern, you have caught it very early.

    Best of luck - Tina

    Thank you all so much
    Dear friends,

    I don't really know what to say except thank you so much for all your prayers and such kind words. They brought tears to my eyes. You are all going through so much and you still reach out to comfort others. I am having a very hard time dealing with all of this and trying to make sense out of something impossible to ever understand, but you all give me strength and support. I can only tell you how incredibly appreciative I am. You are all in my prayers as well.

    Sending hugs to you all,

    Sara
