I went to a dermatologist today and he didn't know what it was and thought it was a tumor and hopefully is benign. He said it felt deep and attached and spongy feeling. I don't have insurance so I didn't want to get a biopsy without it so I"m waiting to get insurance to have it biopsied. Can anyone please help me because I'm worried sick that I'm going to die of cancer.
I'm supposed to get married in August and this is very hard on me. Please help as soon as possible. Thank you!
Im not necessarily the best one to be giving advice (Im sure youve come across some of my worry threads), but first things first. I HIGHLY doubt that your bump is cancer, but even in the circumstance that it WERE cancerous, there is no reason to jump to the conclusion that you are going to die. If they can resect whatever it is, it may be possible to come out of this very well, and with treatments available today people are living longer and longer, even of Cancers once thought hopeless.
Now that being said, If it has been there along time thereis a very good likelyhood it is not cancer if it has not changed much or at all in size. The most important thing you need to do is find out how to go get it biopsied as soon as possible. If your wait for insurance is not too long I would make this a priority. If not Id visit a clinic that might let you make other arrangements.
