    Looloo.......hoping the best for you for a good result. A couple years ago, I had finally decided to have a skin doctor check a spot on my arm. It was nothing, but the doctor took a biopsy of a place she noticed on my back. A week later it came back as malignant melanoma. Fortunately for me it had just started and was easily removed without the need for further treatment. Regular checks and early detection is the key.

    Let's all hope it isn't serious. Take some comfort that by far the large majority of lumps are not cancerous. Breast cancer in the earlier stages is highly treatable, and many women never suffer a recurrence. I will be thinking and praying for you. The waiting for the results is one of the hardest parts. One of my friends just went through this (she is fine, thank goodness) and she went crazy with the wait. Be calm, the odds are in your favor...

    For years and years they told me,
    Be careful of your breasts.
    Don't ever squeeze or bruise them.
    And give them monthly tests.

    So I heeded all their warnings,
    And protected them by law.
    Guarded them very carefully,
    And I always wore my bra.

    After 30 years of astute care,
    My gyno, Dr. Pruitt,
    Said I should get a Mammogram.
    "O.K," I said, "let's do it."

    "Stand up here real close" she said,
    (She got my boob in line,)
    "And tell me when it hurts," she said,
    "Ah yes! Right there, that's fine."

    She stepped upon a pedal,
    I could not believe my eyes!
    A plastic plate came slamming down,
    My hooter's in a vice!

    My skin was stretched and mangled,
    From underneath my chin.
    My poor boob was being squashed,
    To Swedish Pancake thin.

    Excruciating pain I felt,
    Within it's vice-like grip.
    A prisoner in this vicious thing,
    My poor defenseless tit!

    "Take a deep breath" she said to me,
    Who does she think she's kidding?!?
    My chest is mashed in her machine,
    And woozy I am getting.

    "There, that's good," I heard her say,
    (The room was slowly swaying.)
    "Now, let's have a go at the other one."
    Have mercy, I was praying.

    It squeezed me from both up and down,
    It squeezed me from both sides.
    I'll bet SHE'S never had this done,
    To HER tender little hide.

    Next time that they make me do this,
    I will request a blindfold.
    I have no wish to see again,
    My knockers getting steamrolled.

    If I had no problem when I came in,
    I surely have one now.
    If there had been a cyst in there,
    It would have gone "ker-pow!"

    This machine was created by a man,
    Of this, I have no doubt.
    I'd like to stick his balls in there,
    And see how THEY come out.

    Just take it a day at a time, I know its scary. I found a lump the week my grandmother died of breast cancer. I had it biopsied also. Turned out to be a hard chunk of fat, thankfully. That was the first time I realized fat wasn't necessarily flabby.

    I wish you the best, enjoy the holidays and keep us posted.
