Hiya Becs, I'm sorry you find yourself here but welcome all the same 😊 Your Gp can make an educated guess by what's he's seeing and feeling be no he can't be sure of what it is, only the clinic can tell you that.
We know how hard it is to wait but try not to second guess as it could be many things other than cancer, we have so many ladies come through the forum with all the classic breast cancer symptoms only to report back that they had the all clear.
Try to keep busy and not let it consume you, not easy I know all too well but if you let it it will make an already stressful time so much worse , please come back and let us know how you get on X Jo
Thank you for replying, I've wound myself up that much I've even posted it twice and now I don't know how to delete it!
I think I will feel better once the appointment comes through, it's the waiting and not knowing that I'm really struggling with and all I can hear in my head is the GP saying those words.
Finger crossed he is wrong!
Not sure what to say as I’m worried sick at the minute and hoping for some advice. I found a lump in my breast the Wednesday night before Easter.
I rang the docs on the Thursday and due to the bank holiday weekend the earliest they could get me in was the Tuesday. Having not been able to enjoy the long weekend it was on the back of my mind due to a long family history of breast cancer.
When the gp saw me I was given a very thorough examination and his face changed as he examined me, as well as a lump, my nipple is inverted and he said there was a skin change. I have been referred on an urgent referral to a rapid assessment clinic, the words of the gp were “there is a strong possibility you have breast cancer”.
Until that point I wasn’t too worried but hearing those words have made the wait for the appointment so hard. My partner is very angry that he said that, would he have said that if he wasn’t sure? I keep telling myself that he was only doing his job, but I’m now just working myself up!
