Re: iwant to talk to someone
I know it's SO hard not to make catastophic leaps in your mind before you know for sure what you are dealing with. We all tend to do that when we aren't yet armed with enough information.
When you say you wish the doctors would make up their minds, does that mean they themselves are not positive yet that it's cancer?
The CT scans and MRIs will arm you and your doctors with more information about what exactly this is.. Also, if it's not known yet for SURE, the scans will help determine whether it's possible it's a benign (non-cancerous) lesion. They also need to determine it's size. If it IS cancer, the scans will help determine the best treatment for you. There are many effective treatments for what they call paranasal sinus cancers.
"Waiting" is the worst part.
There are incredibly knowledgeable people on this Board AND the Cancer Board...many of whom may be going through exactly what you're going through right this minute...many with the same symptoms...many waiting, like you, for more tests and many who have already been down this road and can answer a lot of questions for you, including what EXACTLY to ask the doctors.
So, just know you're not alone...a lot of us have access to much info and research, and where to turn and who to see and what to ask... plus the fact that SO many people have actually lived through and survived cancer and are here on these boards to help others!
Keep us posted okay?
