I am surprised to find that those with nodules aren't being associated with cancer, as mine was. I don't remember any test to determine this, but they said it was cancer and they said I had it for years. I had already survived a breast lumpectomy which was level one cancer.
I insisted on being checked for ovarian cancer twice when I had bladder repair surgery and found no sign of cancer. At my age I don't worry much about it because I eat almost no sugar to feed cancer and I love vegetables that are thought to be an anti-cancer diet. So I sleep pretty well at night and if I should get more cancer at my age, I will make plans for my demise as gracefully as possible. So far I am able to contribute in music and activities at church so I feel pretty blessed by my outcomes of the past. But now I want to read more. Dorisena
