Hi All

I discovered a hard lump measuring approx 2 inches across my left breast 2 weeks ago. Im 47 and usually fit and healthy so finding a lump has been quite a shock to the system ! Im off to the breast clinic on Thurs, my appointment is at 2.35 and hubby is coming with me. The worrying is driving me insane,im trying to be positive and keep myself busy with work etc. I know im being paranoid but in the last few days everywhere i go i have been reminded of breast cancer London Marathon, i bumped into an old friend i hadnt seen for over 10 years and she had a double masectomy (by choice) as she had lost both her Mum and sister. She’s so brave and im whinging about going for an appointment! rant over xx

Hi Mum47

Sorry to have to welcome you to the waiting room.

I would rather be in any waiting room than this one :frowning:

I, to, am worried sick so can’t offer much in the way of support, but I do know how you feel.

Hi there mum,

You’re not whinging at all, it is perfectly natural to worry and wonder about what is going on with you…

Good luck with your appointment.

Thank you ladies for all your kind words, it really helps to know that im not the only one in the ‘waiting room’! Big huggs to you all xx
