Thank you for all of your kind comments. I appreciate every prayer, good thought, and wish for my health.
I will see the doctor in a couple of hours, at which time I will get more details. My operation is scheduled for next week.
I want to emphasize to all of you that I let a tiny bump go unchecked for months and months because I was not feeling pain. My cancer cells were not painful in themselves--it is when their growth/expansion affected surrounding organs/tissues that I started to feel pain. Please do not delay in seeking medical help if you have any abnormal growth.
