Big Breather

The good news came in just a few minutes ago : all results from the bilateral biopsy came back negative, i.e. BENING and were referred to as fibrocystic changes.

So I was right to refuse to dramatize when the radiologist found the 11 x 4 cm big growth (4 x 1.5 inch), which was relatively… HUGE (if it sits in a not so huge breast).

The scary thing about the whole situation was how quickly it had grown from the last biopsies done, but once I consulted my doctor, we found that the last medical report (from 1999) showed a TYPO which had labeled the cyst as 7 millimeter when in fact it had been 10 times bigger and already a swooping 7 centimeter and should have been removed right then and there, but nobody was alarmed at the time (not referencing back to the mammogram as this doctor now did).

Now I’m healing from this major biopsy which had been past Friday and am taking a deep breather and am thinking for now to myself, “well, THAT grail seems to have passed right by”.
