Mom, do I have cancer?’
‘Well, that’s what they are trying to figure out. Some cancers are treatable with chemo or radiation, and then you’re fine. With other cancers, they might have to operate and remove the tumor, and that’s all. First, we have to find out what it is we are dealing with. It might not be a malignant tumor.’
‘What do you mean?’
‘That means it is just a tumor or a lump or something benign, which is not cancerous.’
