      Thanks everyone for your replies.  I have learned ALOT in the past weeks and appreciate everyones input.  I just went to the doctor today and was supposed to have the wide excision done.  The surgeon came in and said "no, we need to do an Cat Scan to see if it has spread to the lymph nodes before we do the wide excision and we will remove the lymph node(s)  if needed when we do the wide excision."  Thank you Jesus for answered prayers.  Since I have received so much good advice from you guys I am very thankful that God has His hand in all of this and it will be okay.  Thanks again for all the good advice and my prayers are with each of you.
