Paranoia over bone lumps

Original breast cancer diagnosis Oct 22, single masectomy and lymph node clearance then diagnosis of secondaries in bones of spine and pelvis so I now take abemaclib, letrozole and denusomab.
However I have recently felt a lump on a bone in my thigh and a lump in my wrist bone, could these be further mets?


I’m so afraid that i ways feel myself and sometimes feel new lumps, and think they are new, but sometimes they wete there before, just I didn’t notice thrm…can be that too. But i will definitely report them to your oncologist.
Best wishes

Hi jojosum,

Thanks for your post. It’s understandable you have questions about the new lumps you have found. It’s possible that these might be further bone metastasis (mets), but it’s very difficult to say for sure. As you have noticed these new areas, we would always suggest you discuss this with you oncologist or treatment team so they can assess them.

At times like this, some people find it helpful to talk with others who are going through a similar experience. We have a secondary breast cancer online discussion forum including a private chat group for sharing information and support. There is also a weekly Live chat session which runs on Tuesdays at 8.30-9.30pm.

We also provide a number of different services for people living with secondary breast cancer aimed at providing both information and support through our Living with Secondary Breast Cancer Online programme and virtual meetings. Our face to face Living with Secondary Breast Cancer monthly meet up groups also give you the chance to meet and share experiences with other people who understand what you’re going through because they’re going through it too.

Do call our helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. The helpline team have time to listen to your concerns, talk things through and signpost you to more support and information. Your call will be confidential, and the number is free from UK landlines and all mobile networks. The number is 0808 800 6000, (Relay UK -prefix 18001).
