Just because all the bloggers have cancer, it doesn’t mean you do, too.

It’s funny. I am mentally moving away from assuming that I have cancer. I’ve been thinking a lot about why I have assumed that I do, and I think it’s because I have read several stories—both in book and blog form—of people who even after their biopsy were not really worried, because they knew that only 5% of lumps are cancerous. And then they turned out to have cancer. There need to be some stories—lots more stories—of the scenario that happens far more often—that people get their biopsy results back and find out that the lump or lumps are benign. But that story line isn’t dramatic enough to blog or write a memoir about, so it isn’t really out there. Maybe if my biopsy comes back negative for cancer, I can help fill that need.
