One day, as mother of seven Angie Twiggs of Fort Stewart, Georgia was combing her hair, she discovered a small nodule behind her right ear.
It wasn’t painful, but was about the size of an almond. Concerned, she went to several doctors, but all told her that the node was benign and no cause for concern.
However, the protrusion continued to grow dramatically and it began to affect Angie’s life. She was embarrassed to leave the house and hid the growing bump under her long hair.
Before long, Angie had a tumor on her face as big as an orange.
