So, got the preliminary biopsy results back tonight... and they are nondiagnostic. The biopsy did not get a big enough tissue sample to make a definitive diagnosis. However, there was no sign of cancer. The tissue showed increased vascularity and interstitial thickening. I think that the nodule is another manifestation of the scleroderma.
The tissue cultures are still pending, but show no signs of growth to date.
I should have more information in the next couple of days as my doctors weigh in--mostly on whether or not to repeat the biopsy--but I promised I would post it as soon as I know and I'm a girl that keeps my promises!
So, while it's a limbo result, I'm kinda used to that and glad it's not bad news! Let's celebrate!
