So confused

Hi everyone. I hope you are all having a nice weekend,I’ve just signed up as I’ve found quite a large indentation and puckering on my breast-i have my appointment tomorrow at the breast clinic. I am very nervous. My mother has passed away (not due to BC) however I’ve recently found out she was treated for Breast cancer via medication.I wasn’t told I was to young to understand. I know I can only wait to find out, however I’m in turmoil inside. I’m really trying not to look into it to much but I can’t help but cry when I’m around my children (when I’m cosying them to sleep)xx



Hello and welcome to this lovely forum where you will get loads of help and support from the wonderful ladies on here.


It is totally natural for you to feel the way you are as it is fear of the unknown and when our ancxious mind takes over all rationality goes out the window.  The good thing is that you have your appointment tomorrow so you should know what it is. 


It is possible that the breast clinic might want to do a biopsy, this does not mean that it is breast cancer, just that sometimes it is not possible to tell from the mammogram and ultrasound so they may need to do this and send it off for testing.  The good thing is that you are getting this checked out and IF it should be bc  treatment is very good.


Please try not to google your symptoms as there is a lot of outdated misinformation out there and it will only help to fuel your anxiety. 


If you want to let us know how you get on tomorrow, and remember there is always someone on here who will be able to support through this.


Sending you hugs
