I recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  I don’t have many details only the biopsy report.  I’m shaking in fear , and having multiple panic attacks a day.  This is my biopsy report if someone  can help me to interpret and how bad it is. I will appreciate.  I’m desperate.  


Oh bless you I really feel for you , I remember how awful it was . You really need a medical professional with experience to go through this with you - if there isn’t anyone in the treatment team you can reach out to try your GP or you could phone the Helpine ( number at the top of the page ) for more advice . I would have thought that if your biopsy result is back they should be coming up with a treatment plan for you . I’m thinking you must have an appointment soon to discuss it but I know that time plays tricks on you when you’re waiting for news and it may seem a lifetime away .

 Hi leticolemanhope 

Thanks for your post. It sounds as if this is a distressing time for you and it’s natural to feel fearful. 

It’s understandable you want to know what the biopsy means for you. As @JoanneN  says, you can  contact the breast care nurse or doctor at the breast clinic you attended, as they will be able to explain your report and the treatment plan. 

You can also  call our helpline  to talk through the report, as well as how you’re feeling and ways of coping at this time… The helpline team have time to listen to your concerns, talk things through and signpost you to more support and information. 

You could also book an appointment with your GP, who may be able to offer some treatment to help keep you calm, such as talking therapies. Some people need to take anti-anxiety medication to help through this difficult time. 

At Breast Cancer Now, we offer a range of services to help support you including the forums where you’ll find support as @Jill1998  has mentioned. 

Talking to someone who has had a similar experience can often be helpful. Our Someone Like Me service can match you with a trained volunteer who’s had a similar experience to you.  You can be in touch with your volunteer by phone or email for them to answer your questions, offer support or simply listen. 

You can ring the Someone Like Me team on 0114 263 6490 or email them at, so they can then match you to your volunteer.    

Macmillan Cancer Support  also  offer a freecounselling service which you may be interested in.
