Hi everyone! I am new to this group but just felt a need to vent. I went to my regular eye doctor about two weeks ago for a problem. I thought I had something either in my eye or maybe something had scratched it, as it was very irritated and tearing almost constantly. She referred me to an ophthamologist (eye specialist). Well, I saw the specialist today and there is a very odd thing growing in the inner corner of my left eye. I am going back to her office Feb. 26th for a biopsy of this thing, which could be cancer. Then again, I have done some research and it could be a thing called a pterygium. Just wondering if anyone here has any experience with either thing and just looking for some support. I am a relatively young (soon to be 42) woman and this scares me. Thanks for listening!
