Dear Miss Debbie,

	Hi, and welcome to our forum.  You may not have had anyone to talk to
before, but there are plenty of us to lend an ear and advice as well.  Of
course, we are not in the medical profession, but we share our mutual
concerns and support each other when needed.

	Should you be concerned?  There's an old expression that says, "never
trouble trouble, till trouble troubles you!"  In other words, don't look
for the worst until it happens.  Yes, you and anyone else should be
"concerned" when any change takes place in your body that's outside of
the "norm".  It doesn't necessarily mean it's a life-threatening disease;
it could be something simple like being low on a certain element in your
system.  And then, too, it could be more serious, but you won't know if
you don't check it out.

	I'm glad you're seeing a doctor and that he has sent you to a
specialist.  Don't panic because he's an oncologist.  They are
knowledgeable in MANY areas, not just giving chemo therapy.  Please let
us know what the results are.  We're here for you.

Many hugs,
Carol in Memphis
