The trigger for the visit (that could have been extremely aggressive) is almost certainly a non-issue.

But - the preliminarly imaging they did to rule out aggressive causes turned up a 5 mm tumor (in the opposite breast from the cancer I just beat). To quote Gilda Radner, "Well, Jane, it just goes to show you, it's always something — if it ain't one thing, it's another."

The characteristics of this tumor are indefinite - parts of it look like cancer; parts of it don't. Biopsy a week from Friday, after 3 days of diving!

It's all crossed. Every limb and digit. n/t moonscape Oct 2016 #1
