Hi Jill,i've got an app for this wednesday,after finally getting through to appointments manager. Will let you know how i get on
Thank you for your reply,so sorry to hear you have grade 3,how are you coping with that?
No need to think you're scaring me,i'm already scared,hopefully worrying over nothing!
OMG. This is my third time to post the below long post.
I currently live in Canada, to me, more than 2 weeks waiting for a breast clinic referral is not acceptable. I am stage 3A, grade 3 (the most aggressive grade) ER+/PR+/HER+ with 7/28 lymph nodes affected. I am not trying to scare you and I don't have the knowlege to say the small dimplings that you found is anything bad. But to share, in 3 weeks for the total time in waiting for the ultrasound/biopsy and the results, my family doctor (think similar to GP in UK) including me myself could also feel 5 small bumps gradually developed (from 0) under armpit alongside my right breast which my family doctor explaint to me the bumps were mostly the affected (swollen) lymph nodes.
I really hope you can push for an urgent referral and have the necessary tests/appointment in a timely manner.
I looked it up and Scotland and Wales you don't have the 2 week rule like in England and NI - that's very hard for you - you don't have to have lump to be concerned .I hope you get your appointment soon 🤞🤞🤞
Good grief that's terrible it's hard enough waiting 2 weeks and even then if they do a biopsy it can take another week to get the results .
Hi,my gp said initially its now a "4wk cancer referral" when i rang surgery after 4wks,receptionist said,new waiting times came in at start of January,its now an 8wk wait and that's for urgent cases!! I am in Scotland,times might be diferent elsewhere
Hi ,welcome to the forum .8 weeks seems like an awful long time to wait -I'm not surprised you are finding it hard -has your GP referred you as urgent most people are seen within 2 weeks.
