Oh that is great news and thank you so much for posting the outcome of your appointment as it is really reassuring and helpful to ladies coming on here after you to see that lumps do not necessarily mean that you have breast cancer.
I have only just seen your post so not sure what time your apt is today.
A fine needle aspiration is a process where they will use the needle to drain a cyst, so they will inject a cyst and use the syringe to remove the fluid in it. Slightly uncomfortable but it does not take long at all. I had one many years ago when they drained one for me.
Good luck today and if you want to let us know how you get on.
Typical it's at a time when your not working, teaching will keep you distracted that's for sure!
Stay away from googling, if you start putting in your symptoms then of course Breast cancer is going to scream back at you but there are also other harmless things that can cause a lump too they just don't always get reported on in the same way!
Let us know how you get on, we love the good news here too and always like to hear back on clinic outcomes Xx Jo
Hi Naomi, I'm sorry to hear you were treated that this, Its not the norm when dealing with Breast issues I can assure you and the clinics in general are kind and considerate!
At the clinic they will give you a physical exam, then likely a Mammogram depending on your age and if needed an Ultrasound to double check, if they can't dismiss your lump for certain as being harmless they will do a biopsy which would be a week or so wait for the results.
It could be any number of things but the only way to know for certain is to be seen at the breast clinic so you already have the ball rolling, I know it's a stressful time but nothing you can do apart from wait now, it's the hardest part but there's no avoiding it!
It's hard on our partners as they just want to protect us but this is beyond their control, keep yourselves busy and hopefully you will have an appointment through by the end of the week Xx Jo
