This is my first time on this forum.
I noticed a lump in my left breast 10 days ago just by accident really, I went to doctors whom confirmed the lump and said probably nohing to worry about but he will refer me to clinic for ultrasound scan.
I was surprised to get a call from the hospital at 9.00am the following morning confirming the appointment, I presumed it would just be sent out in the post!
The time is nearly here and my appiontment is tomorrow and I am so scared, I never thought I would feel this nervous. I think we all presume the worse outcome and it is very difficult to be positive.
I have read lots of fantastic posts on here and it does help knowing alot of other people are also going through it at the moment.
I am 34 years old and have a fantastic supportive husband who is coming with me tomorrow and we have 2 beautiful children 10 & 5.
Just wondering if anyone else out there recently been through this procedure....just not too sure what to expect.
Thanks to you all, this is a brilliant website.
