I am seriously loath to post this, but I love you all and feel like I need to.
I saw my doctor Thursday about the growth on the top of my head. It was an unofficial visit. He wasn't happy about it and took a biopsy and then had me go over to the hospital for an MRI, which he made sure stayed off the books until my health insurance kicks in. He's good about that sort of thing.
He called me earlier today about the results and I've been mulling them over all day.. He won't get the biopsy results until next week but he did get the MRI results back.
It seems that it does look
like it's a basal cell carcinoma. Funny thing about that kind of skin cancer, it doesn't metastasize like other cancers but it does invade adjoining tissues.
It seems that this one has gone beyond my scalp and has moved through my skull and into my brain. At least according to the MRI. Not too deep yet though.
He kinda fussed me out about letting it go so long without having it checked. I've known him for a few years and could tell he wasn't happy.
So I guess I have brain cancer, sort of. I'm glad I don't use that part all that much LOL. The doc is going to consult with someone else next week and get back to me.
I'm not going to worry about it. It is what it is.
Now if I say something stupid I have a good excuse
