The wait

Hi everyone. I am 25 years old and had a core needle biopsie one week ago. I found a lump in my left breast months ago after experiencing breast pain that spread down my back and arms and in my armpit. 

The results of the biopsie are due thursday and I’m just trying to be calm and positive but to be perfectly honest i am freaking out. My mother died of lung cancer 3 years ago. I am raising my 3 year old daughter by myself.

Does anyone here have any tips on how to relax and be calm for the next 2 days until I find out what the lump is. Really hoping its a fibroadenoma as the doctor already informed me it was not a cyst as we had originally thought and hoped.


Also has anyone here had a biopsie where it turned out not to be cancer?

Hi merleravensmom

Sorry to hear you are having such a worrying time. Please do try posting on the waiting for results section of the forum which can be found in the worried about breast cancer category.
