We didn’t even notice the lump on the back of the head until it was about the size of a BB. It seemed rock hard, almost centered and covered by hair. We pondered what it was. My wife, much more health cautious than I, wanted to get it checked right away. I, as is my pattern, dismissed it as “nothing” and forgot about it.

Time passed, one year, two years, and then three years. The BB sized lump grew and because of its location began to interfere with sound sleep. When you rested on it, it hurt. It grew, a lot. The combination of the discomfort and the size increase moved the lump up the scale of important things needing attention. Finally, finally, an appointment to see a medical specialist was made.

The doctor said 'it’s probably nothing', but wanted to make sure of that diagnosis. After all, there are a lot of lawyers out there who like doctors to be wrong.

The removal of the lump was scheduled at 7:30 a.m. on a weekday morning. The scheduled office was a mere few minutes from the residence. However, 7:28 a.m. was not quite soon enough to wake up and go to the appointment. Controlled panic, you know the kind that comes from being late, set in.
