Debbie Rowe
may have Lymphoma ... at least that's what her doctors are saying.  She's going in for a biopsy today ... and she's terrified of one thing ... PROPOFOL.

Rowe tells TMZ ... various medical tests over the last few months have shown irregularities with her lymph nodes, and doctors are increasingly convinced it's lymphoma, although she believes she doesn't have it.

Rowe -- Michael Jackson's former wife and mother of Prince and Paris --  says she's at peace with the procedure but is "scared to death" of the anesthesia. She says she has told doctors "Propofol is out of the question."

Rowe remains confident, saying, "I'm too healthy to have cancer" -- and she remained confident early this morning before the biopsy.

Healthy people get cancer and survive. Lymphoma is particularly survivable. Debbie, you're not a drug addict like Jacko was. You're smart and vital, unlike him. You will get through this fine. If your doctor wants to give you propofol, don't worry. Jacko's fate won't be yours.

I wish Debbie and her Jay Leno chin would crawl back in the hole she was hiding in when Michael was alive

There is absolutely no need to worry about propofol unless you're going to wake up and give yourself more and OD. Get a brain Debbie! I have had numerous surgeries where propofol was used and it is the best as far as anesthesia goes. You wake right up after alert and ready to go. Easiest anesthesia there is period!

There's no such thing as being too healthy to get cancer. Look at Lance Armstrong and Hugh Jackman.

I had Propofol two weeks ago during a routine procedure. It's great. Works instantly and you awake completely lucid and alert.

And by the way, seemingly healthy people are diagnosed with cancer everyday. Including otherwise healthy children.

There are numerous options so not to worry. Versed is a very good alternative. Your being too healthy to have cancer, unfortunately, is alarmingly naive. Regardless, I hope you don't have cancer of any kind.

Propofol isn't the problem. The problem was Conrad Murray because he wasn't a trained anesthesiologist and an incompetent doctor who should have never been licensed. Good luck Debbie. Your results will come back negative. Good to see you are getting checked out.

To be honest, I'd rather have a regular proscription dose of propofol than lymphoma.

TMZ ... and this will be TOO MUCH for you to handle but ... even though this woman DOES answer your questions naively and kindly, the fact is, you should stop asking (on that basis alone).

Her cancer is a very personal thing, and you know, no-one else you asked that would ever speak to you again. You are taking advantage of her because she trusts you.

NONE of this is relevant to me or any other TMZ reader. PLEASE leave her alone, however willing she is to share. She shouldn't, we don't need to know, and you will be pleased you didn't one day.
