I went to docs in January with eye lid lowering. I was referred to specialist who examined my eye and concluded I had a condition call ptosis which needed operation at the cost of about £3000.

I was just about to go for op when i took ill at work. Went to walk in clinic who thought i had mini stroke. They sent me to hospital where i had a brain scan. Turns out they found a mass behind eye which i have just been told is lymphoma!

This means I have had this since January....what can i do now apart from sort out the cancer.....i am now waiting for appointments to come through from hospital that deals with cancer....

I am scared it will have spread.
