I agree, none of this is "100% I don't have cancer" but..
#1..The odds seem slim. Not impossible, but slim.
#2...He's only having me wait 6 months. If he said, "hey come back in a year or two"...then I'd think this dr. is a quack and I'd be for sure looking for a second opinion!
I will most likely have it taken out at the 6 month checkup, regardless. I am not good with the "unknown". I do great (obviously) with good news, and I can even somewhat handle bad news. But I can't deal with living in limbo. And the thought of cancer *maybe* growing in me somewhere, is enough to drive me insane. I can tell you my quality of life the next 6 months is going to be horrible. I will function and keep up with life....but my carefree attitude is now gone.
I hope these "follicular adneomas" are as common as my dr. says. Because when I have BOTH nodules come back as that, I gotta just take his word for it and try and relax. I guess on the bright side, there is more than one. Not just some single huge lump in my neck. I have quite a few, (all small) and from all these statistics...thats better than just one large one.
Time will tell.
