Today's diagnosis

Roller coaster week, Monday appointment for R breast pain, mammogram, scan, biopsy, shock was, there’s a lump in left one. So that’s lumpectomy booked for 26th. Having to be strong and cheer it up for my mum and dad who are in their eighties. (Sold it to them as good news it was found and only day surgery) I am grateful to only be grade 2 and hopefully only have radio. Cancer nurse visiting me at home on Monday. Feeling a bit fraudulent when I read other people’s stories as I feel fine. Hoping to get a good night sleep and face work tomorrow better than today. Mum been clear for ten years, lost two aunties on my dads side to it. Having 3 daughters and 3 grandaughter’s is freaking me out a bit and wondering about genes :frowning:

Hi Nenya, Welcome to the group (even though its one you don’t want to join!) everyone here is very supportive and reassuring so you will never feel alone. You are definitely not fraudulent, cancer is scary and it doesn’t matter what treatment you may have it all has its impact on each and everyone of us. The waiting for results is really the hardest part and I think everyone will agree with that. It is a rollercoaster and your mind will be working overtime. Try not to worry too much and like you said, they found it early which is the best news :-). xxx
