I used to dance my senior year of high school.Practicing for a ballet performance I had coming up led to me realizing my back was hurting and I felt a lump. I went to the doctor who said it was nothing. A year later it started hurting a lot. I went to a different doctor and I was told there was a 90% chance it was cancer because it grew and it grew quickly. I got a chance to meet with a surgeon who is fairly certain the lump is a lipoma. My lipoma is fairly large and a lot deeper than visible. As a result, I have to have a much more intricate surgery than a normal lipoma needs. I have to be under anesthesia completely and it will leave a large wound that has to have a surgery drain in for at least a week. I also have to have a biopsy of the tissue done to figure out of it is benign or cancerous. A typical lipoma removal costs only $300-$1,000, but because mine is larger and deeper, it will cost a lot more as a combination of the copay and hospital fee. I am a full time college
Two years after our son was born we were blessed with a little girl. She was so perfect, always smiling and filling the house with so much laughter. We all loved her so so much.The summer of 2016 we noticed she wasn't acting like herself, but we didn't know what was wrong.It started with her drinking more water than normal. We thought she was just trying to race her older brother (which they often did) and drink more than him. But she was also wetting the bed almost every night after she was doing so well with potty training only a few months earlier.We took her to the doctor when we noticed the constipation and followed his instructions. Then the vomiting suddenly, getting tired and weak started.She began losing weight, stopped laughing and smiling as much as she used to. And was just all around miserable. So we did what any parent would do, we went back to the doctor and had a blood test done.In August 2016, right before her 3rd birthday, our bab

I noticed a small red pimple like bump on my chin. Around December I could hardly walk. Osteomyelitis has caused multiple herniated disks throughout my spine and neck.
