Is it Cancer?

Is it cancer
these blobs on my thigh
blotchy and there
where they didn't used to be?

Before I saw them
I never thought the word
cancer.

When I noticed them,
but before I thought of that word cancer
I never thought,
cancer.

Now I have thought
cancer.
And a little uncertainty
spreads not on my legs
but up here
where the I I imagine is me
exists.

Not a lot of uncertainty granted
no fear
not yet,
but just a tad less certain
that I had been
before the thought
of that word
cancer.
