started 6 years ago when she found a lump in her breast. At only 17, it was devastating for the entire family to think that she might have breast cancer. Plus, it had more than doubled in size between the time she had first gone to her doctor and her scheduled biopsy, less than 2 weeks later. It turned out to be a benign fibrous cyst, but still!
She continues to deal with fibrous cysts that have been developing on her throat. There is no history of such a condition on either side of the family, as far as we know. My daughter's doctor, however, said that she had seen several girls around the same age with the same issues; so, it made us wonder if there was something in the water.
Fortunately, my daughter's doctors check on her regularly, especially her Otolaryngologist. Thank goodness for a caring medical team!
I'm happy to hear you had a happy outcome, as well.
