Met my new oncologist today. He's okay.
He is concerned about tissue in my chest, that I could have a thymoma. It's residual thymic tissue that's been noted since my March CT. So there was nothing there in December, something in March, June and September. I'm waiting on a biopsy appointment.
Last time I had a biopsy things didn't work out so well.
This guy made it sound like having something malignant right in front of my heart was no big deal. I suppose it isn't when it's not your chest cavity? I'm not overly excited about the idea. I totally get it that it could be nothing. But I don't know that yet and I'd like to get my hand wringing out of the way. The way he talked he sounded like he was trying to get me used to the idea of making friends with a thoracic surgeon. Yeehaw.
Very familiar with the saying about when I hear hoof beats to think horses, not zebras.
So, any of yall have something like this come up?
