Probably one and the same, Delanti.:D

It is a great load removed to know that it was benign, Scholar. Give her our love!

Great news Scholar, I wonder if Dr. Patel is kin to the Patel who runs the corner store in Giron's neighborhood?

Oh Scholar, that is wonderful news. I am glad that you had the result so quickly too - a big weight off Ruby's mind. You must both be really relieved.

The Doctor Patel says the tissue is benign--no cancer!

Look after her well, Scholar. Good luck with the results.

Ruby has come through, and is suffering alternately from pain and from the effects of the pain medication. She says to those at KarlsForums, "Thank you and God bless you."

We'll have the lab results from the lumpectomy tissue reported on Wednesday afternoon (It may be Thursday in London before I get a report to you here.).

hope all goes well.

You are in our thoughts and prayers, at least you have some sort of prognosis. I'd suggest that the cancer diagnosis is correct, but, that it is early enough to be excised with minimal trouble. The Oncologist will be able to advise on future likelihood of recurrence. Give her our love, and look after yourself Scholar, it is often harder for those around the patient who must watch while someone they love suffers and you can do little or nothing about it.

My bride felt a breast lump, and had a mammogram. Something appeared on the image, so she had a biopsy. She was told it was cancer, and she was referred to an oncologist.

The oncologist says he will mark it with a wire, and then remove the lump, but he does not think it is cancer.

Ruby is afraid of cancer (she has lost six relatives to it), afraid of needles, and afraid of anesthetics. She is still a little sore from the biopsy.

I don't understand how it happened that the biopsy result reportedly showed cancer, but the oncologist says he does not think it is cancer. Could he mean that it has not spread? I wish I had been quick-thinking enough to ask in the few minutes we had to speak with him.

The operation is April 5.

We appreciate prayers.


Dear Scholar Our prayers are with you.

I would think that the oncologist would be the expert unless the person who gave the original diagnosis was at a similar level. Cancer is cancer whether it is in stage 1 or secondaries. Perhaps it is "pre-cancerous" i.e. they have caught it in time.

The biopsy was done at a Catholic hospital (Sisters, Order of St. Francis) that specializes in women's health issues such as breast cancer. The results were communicated to Ruby's general doctor at the clinic. He is an intern who works at the community clinic one day a week. I had supposed that someone at the Catholic hospital where the biopsy was done reported the results to him.

How will you pay for the operation?

One of the financial aid experts had already secured for her approval for charity funds to cover expenses, but he said she should apply for an Illinois state Medical card, which will pay for those things which the government approves, at the rate the government is willing to pay. (This has some disadvantages--doctors and hospitals are paid from three to six months later, they are sometimes paid too little and so are unwilling to do things which lose them money, and they tend to choose treatments that are approved for reimbursement even if another treatment is better medical practice.) We are trying to get the Medical card, but it looks like it won't be approved until after the operation, and I don't think it covers expenses earlier than the approval.:(

Sorry to hear that, Scholar. I'm glad that you have taken action so quickly and treatment is in hand. I think that people even doctors are sometimes sloppy with their definitions of tumours some of which are benign and some malignant. Perhaps what he is saying is that it is not malignant.
