Aggressive is the word my urologist used last summer to describe my prostate cancer. Aggressive also is the description for Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma, a type of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, for which I am being treated now.
Cancer is a damn weed.
Cancer grows where it's unwanted. Cancer is like a weed threatening to push aside desired garden plants.
Cancer is like the weeds in my lawn, taking over and crowding out.
And it grew silently, without detection until a pathologist expertly detected it in a biopsy sample.
Cancer is a weed.
Yes, it's an ugly picture. Cancer is an ugly weed.
