My name is Courtney, I am 28 years old. On January 7th they found a tumor growing behind my parotid glad on the right side of my face. I have been told today January 22nd that the area they did the biopsy came back benign which is good, but on the other hand they need to remove the tumor as soon as possible because it can become malignant and cause more of a complication upon attempting to remove it. They are also saying that because the way the tumor has built itself behind my facial muscles instead of above it like it normally would that there is a greater risk for losing some facial movement on my right side which is scary for me, as it would be for anyone. They also say upon removal they will biopsy the tumor once again to see if other areas are malignant or benign. I am a full time student with two children and I have no health care coverage due to living with my children’s father who makes just above the cut off for me to obtain any. I have already paid out of pocket over $2,888 for the tests and the bills keep coming. I have also searched other ways to get covered but I am getting nowhere. The longer I wait to have this done the greater the risks become.
