The little lump is a node and it has to come out.

After spending an hour to locate the new office (I was so embarrassed, I had to keep calling and asking, "Where are you again?!?) we got there to find out he had no definitive answer. The only way to know for certain is to remove it and send it for pathology (which he recommends). He didn't indicate why but he said he'd like to have that happen in the next 4-6 weeks.

So I'm going to be biting the bullet and undergoing the knife again for the second time in under a year. It's kind of freaky but I know it has to happen. I know it's vain of me but I'm dreading the scar I'll be left with as a souvenir. He said it would be about 3/4 of an inch or so long and judging by how the incisions healed on my belly will not be pretty. I wonder if Mederma would help?

Thank you everyone for your support and kind words. You may not realize it but it gives me so much comfort to read your comments. ♥

hope this turns out well.. try lots of hydration, vitamin e as a supplement.

I've heard some people rave about mderma but can't say I've used it myself.
