Re: Tender to touch painful lump

Thank you very much for you’re kind words, evie! It is such a wonderful thing to be able to have someone to talk to in difficult situations, as not many people understand what you go through. I will keep you updated too once we get our appointment at the breast clinic, though she did mention the specialist believes it would not be concerning and that we’ll be called for routine appointment in about 10 weeks. I do hope that everything is all good. Times are a little stressful as they are just now so hope life’s not too harsh on us all even more. Lovely talking to you. Keep safe- gul.

Re: Tender to touch painful lump

@ga1234 - thank you for your reply and very kind words for everyone on this forum, and for me personally, that is much appreciated.

I’m very glad to hear that you managed to speak to the breast team and that they have reassured you. I hope your Mom gets her appointment very soon.

Please let us know how things go, if you feel like it of course, and chat anytime. Please try not to be hard on yourself when you feel like you want to do more for your Mom. I totally get what you are saying though as I have a friend currently having treatment and I want to do more for her. We can’t always do more, but we can be there for our family/friends to listen and support. The fact that you are calling the team and coming on here shows that you are doing lots to help and support. Make sure you take care of yourself too, so that you have strength to look after your Mom. Evie xx

Re: Tender to touch painful lump

Thank you so much! I’ve been doing my best I can to help mom and when she is in pain I feel I haven’t done enough.. 

This morning the breast team called me back and they said not to worry as the mammo was clear so the doctors said it should not be worrying - as the GP must of said it’s a lump area rather than a lump itself. I felt quite relieved after that as they knew and examined mom just a few months back. 
I have to say, the bcn website is so good because as you say people like you are very supportive and you don’t feel lonely and you don’t have to suffer alone, because there are other’s who have experienced the same problems like you which gives a reassurance. I am glad you’re lump wasn’t too concerning too! I wish wellness for all of you lovely ladies and I pray for each one of you going through the scary diagnosis have strength and hope for the best of health.

Re: Tender to touch painful lump

@ga1234 - your Mom is very lucky to have such a supportive daughter, I’m glad you found this forum and hope we can in turn help support you through this worrying time. 

I’m not medical so obviously not qualified to give any medical advice, but I can share my story. I had my treatment for BC about 4 years ago and on 2 of my yearly mammograms since then they spotted a lump. Like you, I was terrified but thankfully it turned out to be the same lump both times and is a fibroadenoma (benign lump). There are many explanations for lumps and it’s good that your GP is being ultra cautious. Remember what @Shi always says, you don’t have BC until someone diagnoses you - so while you wait to go to the clinic try not to let your mind rush ahead. Try to keep in mind that your Mom has only recently had a clear mammogram too. 

In the meantime you might want to give the lovely nurses on here a call - 08088006000 (number is at the top right of this page too).

We are here to listen and hold your hand through this so please come back and chat any time. I and everyone else on here totally understand your fears, we all fear it returning. Sending you and your Mom strength and hugs, and I really hope the lump is benign. Evie xx
