KM, if you have a lump, cyst, or a harmless lipoma (a lump of fat), or something more scary, you have every right to have it investigated, and removed if that is the safe and medically indicated procedure -- or even if you just want it gone! Have you had xray and/or ultra-sound? Seems to me you need more informaton. for your own peace of mind Keep looking for an ocology surgeon who will help you find out what it is. Oncology - because s/he will know about every kind of lump that it might be. Good hunting JenGlen .

David There are different kinds of cancer that need different treatments. Chemo and radiation treat some kinds of treatment. They are not the treatments of choice for the kind of cancer I have, which is estrogen-hungry, and requires a hormone-based treatment, especially in early stages, like mine. No chemo or radiation treatment in my case. Wait until your cancer has been properly diagnosed, then find out what is the best treatment for that particular cancer. I know it is scary when you are firsty told you have cancer. I has surgery less than 2 weeks after diagnosis. I didn't mess around, hunting for cures. I searched for the best cancer hospitals and read the information they provided. I would not choose something as serious as cancer treatment that received no support from people in the medical profession. Prostate cancers have been succesfully treated for decades. THere is good information about safe treatments. Pick good people - doctors, hospitals, and get your cancer treated quickly. Go well, David Jen
