I have just read your post and I am glad you received good news.i noticed you said you suffer from health anxiety I to suffer from health anxiety and with my referral to the breast clinic for Thursday I'm going out of my mind with worry.I just wondered if you mentioned your health anxiety at the clinic? My mum seems to think a lot of my symptoms could be caused by stress/anxiety? If so did they have any insight into this?
Honestly, the vast majority of urgent referrals turn out to be nothing serious, but only the breast clinic can sort it out, which is why we tend to get referred under the '2 week rule.' That is what should happen for investigation of any breast change & it means it gets sorted out quickly.
For the vast majority of women, especially younger women, any breast change is usually due to a commonplace reason, with bc being the Least likely.
There's no getting away from it, it is always an anxious wait but it can help to try & carry on as normal, keep busy & avoid general googling of symptoms as this only heightens anxiety for no good reason.
You have done all you need to for now & if you want to, let us know how you get on.
