Thank you so much!!! I'm going to have the procedure done come hell or high water. It's the only way I will know that nothing is up. It's my body and I refuse to take the physicians gamble that its "probably" nothing, to wait 2 months and if it gets worse to take it out and find out I wasted 6 months. I'd rather have the operation done, and have the doctor prove me wrong and laugh in my face and call me a hypo. I don't care. I just want to know that it's nothing, 100% not "probably"

Being called a "hypo" beats by light years being given some terrible news.
It's your body and your money - they should be able to do it.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Just got home from the doc. No biopsy, but a heart to heart with a nurse plus exam by him and another ent doc has left me feeling pretty good. They say there is nothing for them to biopsy, and it's probably not even a node. That's like 6 health professionals who say thy there's nothing of concern going on. Lets see I this reassurance lasts. On the bad side, I had the derm nurse take pictures of my moles. Apparently that's how they screen who they want to see and not. The one I was concerned about on my shoulder looks particularly jacked up when blown up on the computer. No doubt they'll wanna see me.. Here's to it being benign. Apparently thy won't Even see it until Wednesday. Positive thoughts until then.
