So I have been preoccupied of late as I have this big lump on my neck that the doctor can't explain. I took a course of antibiotics and there was no change and I had blood tests which came back clear. I have now been referred to a lumpy neck clinic and am waiting for an appointment.
E had her MMR booster today so I left work early to get her from my mum and dad only to arrive at their's as my dad was given the news from his doctor on the phone that he has prostate cancer. We don't know yet the stage etc but f*cking hell my poor dad.
Just wanted to write it down and get it out - sorry this is a total ramble.

Oh blimey Al that's a lot to deal with and think about.
I'm sure the lump on your beck is fine and maybe a cyst or something? A clear result is good.
Your poor dad, do they know what the next step is? Treatment? Prostate is one of the cancers that has a high success rate for curing and getting rid, I have everything crossed and am sure this will be the case for your dad. Sorry to hear about your grandad but insure once he knows the next step he will be much more reassured, maybe than what your grandad was?
Big hugs lovely xxx

Oh no Alsi, what a lot to be dealing with all at once. What's the next step for your dad? Please keep talking to us if it helps, unfortunately I think there's a few of us who have been where you are just now so will have an idea of what you are going through.
Hope you get the appointment for your neck through quickly xx

Sorry to hear about your dad. There is a lot they can do for prostate cancer these days.
Re your neck lump its positive that its come back clear. My brother had a lump on his neck removed some years ago and my gran had a lump called a goiter (not sure of the spelling). In both cases the removal was done without any problem. Hope you get a plan for this soon.

Thanks again guys. I called the doctor today as the lump is bigger and she said that the next clinic was not for a fortnight but that I could go the ward at the hospital tomorrow for 11am and a consultant will have a look at me when they can.
My dad is going in to speak to his doctor tomorrow to find out next steps and I think get a further test to see the stage/grade of the cancer.
Fingers crossed we both get good news.
