Hi Denise and welcome to this forum of caring, supportive friends!
Generally with ANs less than 1 cm, we often use mm so yours would be 7 mm or
.7 cm. Since it is still quite small, you have time to weigh your options and get additional opinions. Much depends upon how severe and/or progressive your symptoms are. Tell us a little bit more about your symptoms.
You would do well to send for the free information packet from ANA. See: http://anausa.org/index.php?option=com_aicontactsafe&view=message&layout=message&pf=4&Itemid=195
It contains a wealth of information and much reassurance.
I am not from Michigan but we have several on the forum who are, so hopefully they can shed some light on Dr. Siedman, Dr, Rhu, and any others in that area. Many of us traveled a distance away from where we live for the best treatment.
Take a deep breath. We are here to walk with you through this decision-making, treatment, and post-treatment of your AN.
Let us know how you are doing.
