three weeks ago I went to Doctors with a lump in my throat he had a look and told me he thought it was Cancer OMG !!! I was told in July have a lump in one of my lungs going for another CT scan in December to see if it has grown. Back to throat, went to hospital on Monday had scan on neck and cells taken from lump which scan showed is in the thyroid gland saw the consultant and told would get results in two weeks time. I gave up smoking in July when diagnosed with copd,this last few weeks I could have eaten ciggies let alone smoked them,but havent had one.been on patches and nicorette inhalator,which I get from the Drs This afternoon I went to see the quitters [smoking]nurse told her I nearly weakened and why and joy of joys she had the same thing seven years ago had the lump removed and is fine. she said If the lump is in the thyroid it is confined and if you have to have cancer its the best place to have it.Left the Doctors feeling as though a ton weight had been lifted from my shoulders so hoping to sleep well tonight
