Another one

 In 2002 long before  Cowden’s Syndrome I had early stage breast cancer in the left breast

The breast cancer was treated with a lumpectomy radiation and five long years of horrible medicine.

Eleven years later I get these purple lumps in my radiated breast. Theses lumps appear, continue to grow and are tender to the touch.

 Last Halloween I had a lump under the left breast. Everything came back ok.

This time I had a mammogram in early October. Everything was good.

Since I had a mammogram less than a month ago I didn’t need another one.

But the ultrasound of the lump said its the same thing I had last year.

The surgeon called the lump an atypical lesion that has to come out. So I have an outpatient procedure Dec 6th to take the lump out.

The surgeons nurse agreed with Dave cancer doesn’t grow that fast.

But the lump still has to come out.

Tomorrow

I am not sure where to start. I haven’t written in a long time.

Maybe ten days to two weeks after my doctor’s appointment with the breast specialist, I was getting dressed and thought I felt something.

Now this is after having a good mammogram and the breast ultrasound.

So I felt again and there it was. This lump looked bruised and was on the breast.

A week went by and the lump is still there. I sleep on my stomach so it takes awhile to get comfortable.

Last week I called the breast specialist. I talked to her nurse. I  showed it to the cancer doctor during my appointment last Thursday.

He looked at it did an exam and said he had never seen anything like that before.

He got me a same day appointment with my breast surgeon. Her office called, canceled my appointment and suggested I see the breast specialist.

My breast specialist is out of the country. I tried seeing another doctor in her office once, she was nice, but didn’t want to see me because of the Cowden’s.

So tomorrow I have a mammogram, and breast ultrasound before seeing the breast surgeon. Dave says pretty soon I’m going to glow.
