    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    In 1988 while at the Dr. for a routinne visit for allergies, he asked me, "how long you had that lump in your neck". I said, "what lump"? This was the start of my journey with cancer, that continues today, 24 years later. After a needle biopsy, some cat scans and various other tests, I was referred to an Oncologist.

    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    The first of several operations that I had during this first bout with Cancer, was to have the Lymph nodes removed. In an outpatient surgery, the swollen Lymph Nodes were taken out. Wasn't that much of a surgery, went home that day, and waited for the final results from Pathology.
