Cancer Fears

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Friday afternoon I noticed a scary-looking oddity near my under underarm. Its about 1.25" - 1.5" long, and parts of it are hard, kind of like scar tissue.

I have an appointment with my oncologist's nurse practitioner on thursday to look at it, but its changing appearance every day, so I'm going to try to get in monday, even if its only to my regular doctor. I'm assuming they'll biopsy it.

I really, really, really don't want to deal with skin mets, but this sure looks like it to me. :( Its been three and a half years since I completed treatment of my stage 2 breast cancer. Its truly frightening to contemplate going down that road again. I'm trying not to panic before I have any specific information, but its not easy to set aside my concerns.

    Glad to hear you are taking it seriously and getting it looked at sooner rather than later.

    It's good that you're checking this out - but given how it looks, and if it cropped up recently, I'd say it might be an allergic reaction to something. I hope it turns out to be something benign and easy to deal with!
