Pathology of the Lump

So the path report came back as a "Myofibroma". This is nothing to worry about at all. It was in the muscle and the surgeon got it all out, so it shouldn't grow back. If any of my crazy relatives look it up on their own, don't get it confused with Myofibromatosis, which is very complex with a 80% morbidity rate. The type he had is more common in boys, usually found on the head or trunk, and has an excellent prognosis. I can't find a good image of one, or I would post it.

Hooray! That must be such a relief. Now you only have about 8 million other things to worry about. Sigh, the plight of a mommy!
