  • My mom might have cancer

    I found out 2 days ago that my mom, who is only 65 and has never smoked a day in her life, has a tennis ball sized tumor on her right lung. We are lucky enough to have a Moffit Cancer Center in the Tampa Bay area and she has an appointment on Tuesday, April 26th. Please pray for her. If it's cancer, that big of a tumor is real bad news. Thank you all!
    Your Friend,

    Diagnosed: 10/16/09

    Elmiron, 100mg 2x per day
    Imipramine, 10 mg per day
    Diazepam 10 mg for sleep
    Zovia, birth control (ongoing-no periods)
    Hydrocodone, 2 pills a day (at any time of day)

      just did, its possible to be a big fibroid tumor they are harmless and non-cancerous. I have several in my breast one was the size of a golf ball, and then smaller ones. So I hope and pray thats all it is, If thats what it is she can have them removed if they bother her. Let us know how things turn out bless all of you I know it can be scary.
