joelars – I understand more now. Thank you for going into more detail. ANY diagnostic test is not 100%. My first tumor was picked up by an Xray. Also if your doctor isn't a positive about the anomaly that he picked out then a follow-up CT might be needed.
If a doctor gives you news that is not to your liking then you must follow it up, of course. After my first cancer I went all out with exercising. Don't you think that your welfare should be put before your desire for high intensity work-outs, not matter how good they make you feel?

@ my problem is in defining what is in my welfare. I leave room for the concept of healthy denial. Much of what doctors offer (besides the billings) is suffering with clarity. Is that necessarily in my best interests? Unfortunately, I talk a better fight than I actually fight. I will have the x-ray this week and if it's bad I'll probably go down the same medical/psychological road I tell myself I won't.
