Hello Elizabeth. If a B9 tumour is an abbreviation for a Benign Tumor, then it means that the lump is not cancer. That would be very good news!

How are you feeling with all this surgery? I fully understand that you must be heartily fed up with being the repository of all these rare conditions.

Every good wish.

I empathise with your frustration. I had a Benign Tumour (cholesteatoma) removed from my ear a few years a go. Very scary, was nearly left with facial palsy. It's not easy being the recipient of rare conditions at the best of times. Who knows why some of us get the lurgy worse than others, although I like to believe they're character building and we become stronger people as a result :) . I hope your recovery is going well? my best wishes to you. Stay positive.

Joshua
