    Hi Beverley,you are right it is the not knowing ,I am hoping to see someone from the Maggies centre in Oxford during the coming week to discuss my fears etc.In the meantime I just have to remain positive.

    Kind Regards

    Hi David,

    Have you spoken to anyone about your concerns and fear? I think once you get the biospy taken and know what it is you have to deal with you may feel better as I think sometimes the fear of the unknown is more difficult to cope with.

    Please let me know how things go.

    Best Wishes
