Hi Sarah,

I can’t really offer advice as the way I was diagnosed with secondaries was different - hopefully others will be able to help, but I just wanted to say sorry you are in this position; it is extremely stressful waiting to find out what’s happening and what the treatment plan is. It may be helpful for you to call the BCC helpline to talk things through.
Best wishes,
