The words "probably benign" still doesn't give a person any relief. Still living on the edge for the next few months though .

I hear ya man, I've just gone through a serious cancer diagnosis in my family and the doctor told my family member "you're cured, but you should still see an oncologist to see if you need chemo". Talk about mixed messages, sounds like your doctor is similar with not having a concrete answer for you. "probably" is not a word you want to hear when it comes to your health.

Good news if there's any . Drs were thinking might have tumor in the portoid gland as well but they got on top of diagnostic really quick but nothing there . So now despite the all clear it's a wait and see also.

That's 2 rolls of the dice .

Let's just wait and see ...

Take the good news with a smile when you get it man. I'm sure you're tired of all of the blood tests and xrays and stuff, but at least you're lucky enough to live in a time and country where you can have these things addressed, right? Sorry if that comes off as condescending, just trying to help you look on the bright side.

I'm now 65. Because I was so relatively young at the time, it was recommended that I undergo a radical prostatectomy, which I did. I did not need any radiation or chemo. I ended up impotent as a result, although I'm not at all sure that this was entirely due to the surgery. I'm more inclined to think it was the surgery in combination with my mental health struggles, antidepressants, & some other stuff. I also still experience some mild incontinence. But the cancer was gone & that's the main thing. Best wishes...
Thanks for sharing
