Hi Jinny


Sorry that you have a new worry. I understand the terror, I found a new lump just before my 5th chemo so my mind was racing thinking if it’s growing during chemo what on earth can they do. HOWEVER, after ultrasound and biopsy - which made me think it must be malignant - it turned out to be a cyst. I also found a lump in my leg which turned out to be a harmless lipoma but nevertheless scared the heck out of me at the time.


So, try to control the panic, there are lots of benign conditions that it could be. Plus, you’ve noticed it and are in the process of getting it checked and if it is a tumour then they can remove it and continue with follow up treatment. There’s lots they can do. And as Sam says, give the helpline a call. They’re amazingly good at calming you down because they have a lot of knowledge and understanding. I’ve called them myself and have felt so much better afterwards.


Sorry I didn’t see your thread till today, I didn’t check the Forum yesterday.


Sending you my best wishes.
