Seems I can never do anything small

So I had my biopsy this afternoon.

The tumor (the docs stopped calling it a mass or nodule at this point) is bigger than we thought; 8.8cm long 8.6cm high and 8.2cm deep... about the size of a large lemon or a small russett potato.

Yeah... I was rather shocked something that big could be growing in my neck for what has to have been years, and noone noticed.

The pathology report will be done Wednesday or Thursday; but given the size, and composition, there's little doubt it's cancer. The question is, which type, and is it malignant.

At least we'll know soon; and because of the size, it'll be surgically removed no matter what.

That should put me on the road to getting better.
