Okay, so I know I said, ages ago, that I had news I would share the next day.

I never got round to it, sorry. 

Anyway, I’m getting to it now. 

So a couple of weeks back, I went to the hospital to get the results of a scan which was to, effectively, tell me whether or not my treatment was successful which, thankfully, it was for the cancer I had in my arm. Which is amazing news, there’s no doubt about that. 

However, during the scan they found something in my lung. It’s only 6mm which means it’s too small for them to know what it is. It could be anything from scar tissue, to another tumor or just a benign fibroma lump. The only thing is, due to where my tumour was before, I am at an increased risk of lung cancer, despite the fact I don’t even smoke. 

I have to go back to the hospital in September, the 16th to be exact, for another scan which should tell us what it is, if the mass they have spotted grows in that time, then it is likely it is cancer again. However, my doctor has said she isn’t worried about it and for now, I’m going to try and not worry. But as much as I say I’m not worried, there is always going to be something nagging me in the back of my head; I’ve already spent the first half of this year dealing with my health, being in and out of hospital and now I just want to get on with it. I want to go to university in September, I want to start that new chapter in my life, I don’t want everything to be put on hold again.

Anyway, I’m going to keep as positive as I can.
