Hi Rick,

I read your post in response to Jeremy’s, and both of you mentioned surgery (hope Joel’s went fine). I have the same type of lump on the back of my neck that both of you describe. I go to the doctor next week to get it checked out.

I fear he’ll probably just tell me it’s nothing, and I don’t think I will rest easy until I have the lump removed to check for cancer.

I guess I am just wondering what the surgery entails and hoping you could tell me what was involved in Joel’s surgery – ie, day surgery, or was he in there for a couple days, etc.

I am also 26, a Canadian living in England and little scared that the NHS won’t do enough for me so I’m trying to get as much information as I can tell the doctors what I’d like to do about it.

Anyway, thanks in advance for any information you can give me.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
