My dh told me last night * final update*

that he thinks a lump in his belly could be cancer. His grandma has had cancer six different times and he called her to tell her about the lump. He first noticed it 3 weeks ago and it was pea-sized but now it is approaching the size of a dime. Worst part is that I am do not work and his job does not offer health insurance. He is uninsured and it scares me because I have no idea what we are going to do or how we are going to get this issue resolved. 



Update: he made an appointment for Thursday morning. Will update again when we know what it is.


Update 2: He went to see a doc and doc says it is a sebaceous cyst. Unless it gets much bigger, the doc says to leave it alone. Thank you all for your support in this scary moment.

Take him to the ER before it gets worse.

The longer you wait the worse it will get and the more $$$ it will be!
