Yeah – terrible if it is cancer but there’s not enough concern or awareness for non-cancerous growths. People need to be educated. Usually, if you have cancer of any type, they go for the urgent and immediate treatment. With benign tumors, its sometimes a wait and see approach, unless there are symptoms. So the waiting/testing/monitoring and eventually treatment is long and drawn out. Takes a toll on you when you know what’s there but can’t really do anything about it – so you worry and wonder. And I get mad when I am not taken seriously.
