Dr. Bitar clarified my “mammogram” notification via email earlier this weekend with the complete MRI report. No abnormal changes were observed with the exception of a 7 mm “enhancing focus within the skin” which “may be related to inflamed skin process, such as inflamed sebaceous cyst.” I was impressed and relieved to know that both the radiologist and Dr. Bitar were able to remotely yet accurately assess something I had already locally observed, an ordinary pimple.
To celebrate this bill of good health, I upgraded my entry at the upcoming Half Moon Bay race in late September from a 10K to a half marathon. To be honest, I don’t have any business running a half marathon since these days I typically log no more than 12 running miles and 10 walking miles per week, but I can blame my exuberance on the rush of a good MRI result.
