Cancer Was Not Part of My Vocabulary. Now It Is. What Will I Do?
The words in the subtitle of the article were spoken by a patient who had a skin cancer removed recently. She did so after I read the pathology report showing a non-invasive growth, meaning that it was not a true cancer yet. I sensed he anxiety and explained the crucial difference between invasive cancers and pre-invasive growths. point clearly and slowly. She was not satisfied.
Her surgeon had advised close follow-up which she planned to do. I, of course, seconded that. But I knew that was not what she expected from me in response to her question.
