Never ending fear

Hey ho. Here I am again. Just need some reassurance. 

After 23 years of multiple and various breast lumps, including cancer 16 years ago, I’ve been re-called to have some papillomas removed. Obviously will be glad to be rid of them but I’m feeling vulnerable and fed up. 

The anxiety never ends, does it?

Hello Chalee, 

Yes, at what point can we just accept that this is normality!! Now I am not the most knowledgeable, but I understand papillomas to be benign growths. If so, I hope that is something to be relieved about. Not that that should diminish other feelings about the prospect of surgery, the aftermath and all the emotions it all must raise again.

Anyway, I just wanted to wish you well with your treatment. I hope I do not offend you if I say that hearing of circumstances like yours, i.e. Having cancer 16 years ago, can have a positive effect on my own feelings about the future.

Best wishes,
