    I called the doctor's secretary right away this morning at 8 am.
    Her response was, I can't connect you to the doctor, but I can leave him a message to call you. WTF???

    So I waited until 10 am before heading for bed. I figured now he will call as soon as I fall asleep.
    The doctor finally called me back about 3 pm.

    Good News: It was a benign cyst.

    Bad News: It was a some what rarer version that had something to do with the hair folickles that could cause it to grow back again. Also he read of one account where it caused a skin cancer. A slow growing type, so I shouldn't worry.

    Options: If I am really worried about it, I could come back in and have more skin/area cut out. Or I oculd let it go and come back in 9 months to a year and have things checked out again.

    I am choosing to go with the wait and see.
    So hopefully it would start growing again.

You've had these before, so obviously they're likely to come back. May any and all be the benign kind!!!!

Nice of The Doc to let you get some sleep before disturbing you...

I was happy if he was going to make me wait, I got to get some decent amount of sleep. :)
I have had them before but they were also different types of cyst. I am assuming he means this one could grow back same place. I have another one on the back of my neck I think is more like the other ones I have had. Feels like it's "in" in skin tissue and not under it. :p Hopefully I can ignore that one for awhile instead of going through this hassle again. Maybe when I feel the need for another break from work. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
