I am 47 years old. My mother died with brain cancer when I was 14 at the age of 35. I just found out my brother has kidney cancer. I don't have a diagnosis of cancer but have been told the masses in my neck could be lymphoma and I have been around the world. My gp, endo and the general surgeon I was sent to says biopsy as soon as possible but ent wants to do many other things before biopsy. my masses have been there for over a year. I have three grown wonderful children and two beautiful grand babies. I lost my previous husband in 08 to liver cancer. Cancer is no stranger these days to many many households.
