I've long heard the saying about ignoring the elephant in the room, and I don't want to be guilty of ignoring an obvious truth. So, here goes.
I have a lump in my right breast, and my doctor is sending me to a specialist for a mammogram and an ultrasound. It's also a source of concern that my mom has twice had breast cancer.
This may be nothing, or it may be everything. I'd be rather deep in denial if I said I were totally unconcerned, but I'm not afraid. I'm going to wait to freak out until I have something to freak out over.
