I noticed I had a bump on the right side of my head while I was washing my hair a few days ago. I don’t think I hit my head. As I went to a clinic today, I informed the oncologist. After she examined my bump, it got more tender and hurt even with a yawn.
“ Where should we start?” Washing her hands doctor pondered for a while, and then she recommended a CT scan.
Radiation on my brain? No!
A chest and abdominal CT scan is due now, and I don’t want to add more radiation especially on my head.
“ How about a MRI?” I asked.
She said a MRI would be too big a deal.
“Then a PET?”
“No, PET is not good because the brain has so many activities,” she said.
Finally we decided to start with an ultrasound scan.
I didn’t think about it seriously, but talking with the doctor, I realized this could be a cancer. One after another—concerns continue. I just bought a ticket to go to Japan. Can I leap over this new hurdle and enjoy the trip? I have to pray more.
