(16-08-04) Cyst

Dr. Gunia is not at all concerned about the lump underneath my left armpit. Based on the symptoms (color, pain, and closeness to the surface of my skin), she ruled out “tumor” AND “infected lymph node.” Instead, she said it is an epidermal cyst … and if warm compresses don’t succeed in eliminating it over time, she said it can easily be removed during any of the surgeries I will have in the upcoming future.

“This is normal,” she said.

Who knew I would ever feel so happy to be called normal?

I was diagnosed with Stage 3C Invasive Breast Cancer in October/November, 2015. This blog is my way to process my experience and allow my loved ones to have ongoing updates about my journey.
