      Don't you love it when your doctor examines you for something you're worried about and then doesn't say anything about it? Honestly! Is it hot to the touch? Swollen? Does it respond to ice (redness goes away)? How big is it?

      this is so normal you think the dr would know this. I had a friend who had it for 6 months just keep an eye on it and keep lotion on it remember you were cooked from the inside you are like the turkey at thanksgiving and your poper poped out!

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I have had three of four treatments. Have issues with nasty taste in mouth, skin problems, foot neuropathy, hair loss. Up till this week I was handling things mentally, but am having some problems there now.
