We are so accustomed to modern medicine fixing anything and everything that we sometimes forget that we still are the one who must make the actual choices, manage our own risks. I thought the biopsy was a royal pain in the ass. I was also absolutely terrified and squeamish at the thought of platinum permanent markers at the cysts, yet it was clearly the safest way to go. Iím fine now and realize what a baby I was about the whole thing. Someone else chose to assume her cysts were not significant and now she is fighting for her life.
