Hello all

After persisting i eventually got a referral and consultant booked me in for a mammo and ultrasound next week
I have best way to discribe it a long hard lump (feels like its fixed deep to maybe chest wall) and i have also noticed a dent where the lump is 4 oclock lower quadrant. Any advise plz xxx

Hi Bluefrog

Welcome to the forum and I am so that you have found yourself here however, this is the best possible place for you to be. Please do not google anything, just stick with this website and the MacMillan website.

Unfortunately, without the mammogram and a byopsy, you will be unable to tell what the lump is, but please bear in mind at 9 out of 10 lumps (I think, or is it 8 out of 10) are benign.

With my lump, I had no pain and certainly no other symptoms. I am 42 an was diagnosed with a Grade 3 invasive breast cancer. I had my lumpectomy 2 weeks ago and received my results today - Clear margins and no node involvement.

The waiting is the hardest part, you will be taken to the darkest places in your own mind, but please keep yourself busy and rely on the help and kindness of your friends and family.

Take care

Hi Bluefrog
Being in the ‘waiting room’ is the hardest part and its natural to think the worst. As Martha has said avoid Google, you’ll end up diagnosing yourself with all sorts!!
Good luck with your appointment. Don’t be afraid to ask for an opinion on the day, as if you have a biopsy you will be back in the ‘waiting room’ waiting for your results.
sending positive thoughts your way xxx
