Biopsy Results tomorrow

Hi Im new here but have been observing for a while.  I’m about to attend my 3rd appt at the breast clinic after initally having a mammography and ultrasound which discovered 2 cysts and skin thickening which the consultant says in a letter sent back to my doc is benign.  However I have a tiny 3mmx3mm patch on my areola that hasnt cleared up or gotten any worse so i have been back and had a biopsy on.  The results of which i will get tomorrow.

The consultant assured me that he thinks it is nothing and probably just hormonal however I am very anxious about going tomorrow.  My appt is late afternoon which doesnt help.  Not sure how I am going to get there cos at the moment I feel like just not going (i will I just wish i didnt have to).

I dont think the consultant would put in a letter back to the doc that it is benign skin thickening and 2 cysts if he wasnt quite sure.  I had to have a core biopsy of which he said in any situation where there is a 00000000.1% chance of abnormality this is the only sure way.

Just very anxious and wanted to write it down thanks

Hi mellep44

It sounds like you’re having a tough time at the moment.

Hi, mellep44 

I know what you mean about not wanting to go to your appointment. I wanted to jump under the covers and pull them over my head and never come out. Waiting is horrible and scary, but you’re almost there. 

Take heart from the fact that you’re not alone. We’ve all been through it and we’re here if you need to talk.

Wishing you the very best for tomorrow. Please let us know how you get on.

Hug

Hi mellep44!

 

Did you get your results back? Hope it’s a good news today! x

Hi thanks for your responses. Well the biopsy result came back benign which was excellent news however the consultant is still a bit concerned about the thickening behind the nipple. I’ve had another ultrasound which showed nothing but dense tissue. Back to see consultan t tomorrow and probably another biopsy. I’m not feeling sooo stressed I just want answers now. Feel lucky to be in such good hands. Will keep you updated ?

Hi Cath. Well consultant quite happy that all is well with me but as the dense tissue is not showing on ultrasound only mammo I have to have 1 final biopsy under mammo. I’m quite happy to have this as it will 100% conclude things. But I’m looking good. Hope all goes well with your treatment I’ll be thinking of you xxx

Hi Sorry only just had my biopsy appt which is for monday 7 July.  Fingers crossed this is the end of my journey.  I have to have a stereotactic biopsy (under mammogram) and the results should only take a few days (fingers crossed)

Hope your well cath…be thinking of you for tuesday

Feeling a bit selfish today! After getting my great results I found out a good friend has breast cancer for a second time…she had her yearly mammo about the same time as i had my second biopsy!! Such mixed emotions…i feel so guilty.  On top of that my ex has a new g/f.  I feel like i should be grateful for small mercies and relieved at such a trivial annoyance.

Just such a conflicting time!! Wanted to share
