Wonder if anyone could shed some light. I’m 20 years old, I noticed a lump in my breast back in 2014. I had it examined and they took a biopsy, it came back to be a fibroadenoma. I decided at the time to just monitor it. However last year I found another and again when back to have it checked which again, another fibroadenoma. However I’ve now decided to get them removed as they can be very painful. I went to my gp who sent my referral letter to the hospital. I’m now just wondering how long roughly will I be waiting for the operation? Months? Weeks? If someone could just tell me their time frame it would be a great help. I worry to much!x

Hi xsoph_louise,

Thanks for getting in touch about this - the best thing to do would be to call our helpline on 0808 800 6000 to speak to one of our specialist nurses. 

They are open Saturday mornings or usual office hours from Monday. 

Take care, 

Becca at Breast Cancer Care.
