Oh no! So sorry this is happening to you and your DH! I know you can’t be TOTALLY relieved, but hearing about how good his chances would be and that there’s a really good chance it isn’t cancer is awesome! Keep thinking positive thoughts – it’ll keep your Darling Husband in good spirits too. I can’t imagine having to wait so long for real results – stay strong! Please let us know when you find out more, I’d love to hear that he’s doing well.

Not sure if this is any consolation, but I found a lump in my breast a couple years ago. My gyno confirmed there was definitely something there, and sent me to a specialist for an ultrasound.

The breast tissue was a little irregular, and very dense in places, but there was no tumor of any kind. The ultrasound was in a small private room, and the results were on the screen as it was happening, so I got instant results. There was nothing painful or scary about it.

I had convinced myself that I was most certainly dying and in the end there was nothing worrisome at all. The human body makes all sorts of lumps and irregularities. Some of them are cancer, but most of them aren’t–hopefully you’ll find out that his isn’t very soon. I’ll keep the two of you in my prayers in the meantime.

I’m so sorry you have to go through this.  I know it’s hard not to think about it but try not to worry too much until you have results and STAY AWAY from google!!  I was in a similar situation a few months ago, my Fiance went to the dentist for an AWFUL looking white ulcer in his mouth and the dentist freaked him out when she said “OMG I have only seen this in textbooks…it looks really bad and you have to see an oral surgeon ASAP.”  She thought it was oral cancer.  You can imagine how the next 2 weeks went.  Well he had a blood test that looked okay and we finally got the biopsy results ad it was benign.  The dr said it did look bad but was likely his Crohn’s.  After dealing with all of that, my best advice is to stay off the internet and try not to worry about it until you get results.  I’m thinking of you and your husband, my thoughts and prayers are with you!

My FH went through this two years ago.  The waiting for appointments about sent him over the edge, and I completely understood that.  It did turn out to be a calcium deposit and all is well.  Sending you good thoughts and prayers.

My Fiance went through this a year and a half ago as well.  It is so incredibly draining to wait, but it’s SO good he was checking and hopefully if it is anything, it will be caught early!  You’re in my thoughts and prayers that it’s nothing!

***TMI Alert*** But it’s good for both of you to know ahead of time.  Apparently, these kind of ultrasounds can be very unintentionally arousing for men.  When Fiance had his, another friend who had the procedure before told him to “take care” of himself just before going to the appointment, and Fiance said he thinks that helped avoid any embarassing “standing up” issues, if you catch my drift. 😉

Just something you may want to pass on to your guy beforehand, so he is prepared!

My fiance went through the same thing several years ago and it turned out to be just a cyst.  I agree to stay away from google and webmd, they only show the worst case scenario!  Either way, I’m sure he’ll be fine, so try not to panic!

Hubs had one at the base of his sac, a small one and it went away on its own before I could make him go to the doc for it. Hopefully its just a cyst, I have had many of them throughout my life

I know it’s easy for us to say, but TRY not to worry. It probably IS nothing, but even if it isn’t, he’s being seen by a dr. and not letting it go, and that’s a huge plus.

Hang in there!
