I'm sorry for your fear--and I hope the biopsy shows nothing seriously wrong (besides the mass itself, which is now gone, right?)
As far as 'eating healthy' and 'dieting,' you'd be wise to destroy the word 'diet' used as a verb for the rest of your life, regardless of what the biopsy shows. A DIET is what a person (or animal, for that matter) eats. TO DIET generally means to restrict food intake in some way (most current options are unhealthy). YOUR DIET should BE healthy food, in healthy proportions, consumed in a healthy environment. Doing that, you will lose weight and promote better health.
The last thing you want to do if you are facing serious illness is toss A healthy DIET in the trash. Eating healthy can help medications work better, and surgical outcomes improve (of course, there may be medical restrictions--I recall my Dad's ire when one of his meds meant he had to give up his beloved morning grapefruit--but that's different than 'dieting').
Following a good SP diet is the best way to fight off illness and heal.
(And, so you know, a few years ago I went through a time of sheer terror when it was thought I had ovarian cancer; turned out to be the result of looking at a poorly aimed ultrasound shot through a 'perfectly normal' post-menopausal fibroid...I feel your pain, believe me. My first desire while waiting for news was to eat all the icecream I was afraid I wouldn't live long enough to enjoy. Took a few days to realize that was really stupid, and now I can laugh at myself, but fear does really strange things to the mind.)
Accept your fear, feel it all the way through, then do your best to go on with your day. You CAN carry fear; you don't have to let it carry you.
