It was all kind of vague and alarming at the same time and I don't really know what to think. I guess I'll have to wait and find out.
Wow... I've no words to say right now While I'm sure the nurse practitioner is just doing her due diligence, simply being forced into this grim quandary will have anybody thinking about the worst possible outcome. Really sorry to hear this, Rachel, and I'm hoping your next appointment will turn this incident into an interesting (albeit scary as hell) story to tell rather than a potential turning point...

...uughghgh... just finishing that sentence felt wrong to type. No more bad vibes! You'll be fine, everything is going to be okay--you're motherf'n Rachel D., and cancer ain't gonna fuck with you goddamnit


EDIT: also...

Rachel, sending you all good wishes and healing light!

Thank you for the kind words and prayers!

I got my results from the test back, and it didn't show any cancer. So that's good news! I did have two other spots, though, and had to go in today to have a specialist look at them. She ended up taking two biopsies, but said she doesn't think they look like cancer and are probably due to a skin condition. I'll find out in a couple of days. I'm not worried if she's not worried, but I guess the possibility is still there, even though it's not likely. But, let me tell you, having a couple of pieces removed sure doesn't feel good.

Also, I saw on Facebook today that a girl from my class in high school has stage three cancer. That's a strange coincidence; she was going through the same thing as me around the same time, except she had really bad news. Here I am being a giant baby about having to get a biopsy when she's probably going to have to get chemo. It really makes me stop and think.

I am glad for your good news, Rachel! Having had a melanoma on my shoulder and a squamous area on my calf. Over the years my dermatologist has had several areas biopsied (including a scrape biopsy which left a nasty scar), and fortunately they have all turned out to be benign. Prayers to your friend, and hugs to you.

Whoa... I'm late to the Good News Gathering--apologies, Rachel!--but I'm so very happy for you that the scare was only just that. Geez, your mind must've been running wild w/ anxiety leading up to the appointment

Really glad you can move on from that whole ordeal

I'm glad everything will be all right for you now, Rachel: you've had quite a scare.

But many best wishes and I am glad you're OK.
