    Hello. Did the xrays show anything? Good luck with the MRI and I hope it shows that you do not have cancer.
    We can be of no help to you guessing what may or may not happen but good luck and we will be here for you should you be diagnosed with a cancer. Stay off the net trying to self diagnose. It can make people think they are seriously ill and dying when most often there is something far less serious wrong.
    Please let us know how you go.

    All we can tell you is to see your doc and keep pushing for answers if you are not satisfied.
    We cant tell what is wrong with you, how can we? It is silly to think so.
    You would have just as much luck asking people on the street who you are walking past. This is a forum for those with cancer and those who love and care for them.
    Should you be diagnosed with a cancer we will be here every step of the way with you.
