My apologies for the late update. I wanted to get all of the information first.
He had the ultrasound done on his chest to look at the lump, he was told it was not cancer and the information from the ultrasound would be sent to his doctor and to make and appt. in 3-5 days with him as by then he will have reviewed the results of the scan and will be able to have a better idea of what it is and what to do.
My question to my husband was... how do they know its not cancer? Did they take a sample from it? Did they remove anything from it to biopsy it? They just took an ultrasound? How do they know.
I'm not trying to make him nervous... but... I mean, if it were ME in there, these are questions *I* would have asked. 'course when you're a man, you dont ask questions'
I mean... I haven't hit the age where you go do yearly mammagram thing done, so I dont know WHAT they are looking for, or what it would look like or any of that.
I did research my question & came up with it would depend on if it was solid or fluid filled... one would think he would have been told SOMTHING about what the 'consistancy' was of it... I would have asked about it... again, I'm inquisitive... I dunno.
So I guess we'll see when he goes to the doctor. Since he didnt ask any questions... 'the wife' didnt get any answers, other than the doctor that looked at the ultrasound image, said... 'thats not cancer'... ?
That's good news to hear... BUT... can anyone tell me HOW by looking at a scan they know that without actually drawing anything out of it, picking at it, or anything... I mean... my husband is a thin man... it wouldnt take much to get to the lump
