Twist on Cancer: Living with a chronic illness - Multiple Sclerosis - is a daily grind. The disease marches on no matter the medicines or regimens. During two MRIs for MS, nodes were found in each lung and thyroid. I twice went through barbaric thyroid surgery to obtain cells to test for cancer. Both were returned inconclusive. When the lung nodes were found and the same invasive approach was recommended I declined - opting to wait and see if these grow or more appear. This far, three years later, they remain stable.
