Anyone besides me assign a name to the little beast?

I have not read of anyone referring to the beast by a name. 

I refer to mine as "Bob the Blob".

Just curious.....

No, not me!!  I just want it out..   I go this Tuesday for hopefully a partial and want to get it the h*ll out! lol  I have been kind of nesting if you know what I mean. I am getting really nervous so keeping me busy has really helped with that.

Oh yeah. But it can't be printed in polite company ;)

I know exactly what you mean. I've nested several times over the last 5 years.

My tumor was named, too.  For no special reason, it was christened as "Ralph".  Giving it a name helped while we waited for surgery.

That's awesome.  Although mine was named AFTER removal.  Smile

DarthTumour, makes it so much easier to malign the malignancy.

The two remaining active tumors in my abdomen I refer to them as “Sid Vicious” and “Johnny Rotten”.

I still haven't come up with anything to call the little $^&$*#*(%.

But here is a poem for them: 

The Docs in OR kept looking for more,

As they searched high and low to even the score,

They sliced and they diced and said you can't stay,

then sent you to pathology to turn into a filet.

The kids named my good kidney "the one and only powerful Jazielle" or "Jazzy" for short and the other one "Bumpy Bob". I keep saying we need to throw a party to rename him "Bumpless Bob".

Mine was Arnold. After Arnold Schwarzennegger for his role in Kindergarten Cop. He had a line: "It's not a tumor!" After I was diagnosed, we tried to make light of it as much as possble (he was a big tumor). My husband used to say in Schwarzennegger's accent "it's not a tumour". That always got me giggling. When he was removed, I happily announced that ARNOLD HAS LEFT THE BUILDING! And he has not come back!

Salud!
