Re: 4 mm lump in same breast as before!

I start rads on 20 th April Hopefully I've got a wee bit of wound open and have a build up of fluid which keeps leaking through it. Bit of a pain.so the ,dates might change if the fluid continues to build.. I had Chemo 1st time around. Grateful not having again.

The tablets I am on now are Exemestane(aromasin). dont know how I'm getting on with them.My sleep pattern is out of sync .only sleeping three or four hours at at time. Keep falling asleep during the day lol. Don't know whether it's just from the op or the tablets At times feel nauseous . Will give it a month and see how it goes..kept in touch with how you are getting on. X

Oh I wish I could tell you LOL. I know how scared I was. I think everyone is in the same boat waiting for these results.hopefully you will get the same outcome as me as it is very near the original site and might be a couple of cells that have taken life.I'm afraid only the tests will tell. feel free to message me if you want to vent or talk

Hi Teecass
Oh the waiting is the worst part for all of us. I was just recently diagnosed with recurrence as well Mine popped out from my mascectomy scar..it was 2cm lump. After confirmation I had a bone scan and body scan to check for spread.i was like you scared it had spread.Luckily it was found to have likely been a rogue cell left from 4 years ago that had took life. I've since had it removed and waiting to start rads as a further precaution. I've had my tablets changed to. This could be the same for you.
They will be able to compare this biopsy with your last one to see if is the same as last Cancer or a new Cancer.
I'm afraid it's back to the waiting game which is the worst which is no consolation to you at this moment as that was my main concern it had spread Please try to stay positive..we are all here for you.xxx

Hi Didn't want to read and run.  Just wanted to say I know exactly how you are feeling and it being Easter is the pits when you can't access anyone, like Christmas.  Please try not to read anything else as it just fuels the worry, I know as I do it all the time and like you I become sick with fear and worry.  The treatments these days are so much more advanced and whatever your results I am sure they will deal with it.  Hugs to you and please don't read any more, they are not relevant to your situation as everybody is different.  Phone the help line for some reassurance and the very best of luck to you xxx

4 mm lump in same breast as before!

Please help me. Easter weekend and no one to turn to. Yesterday I had an ultra sound and he found a 4 mm lump 2cm from my original cancer site. He seemed sure it was cancer and took biopsies and sent them off. It's only been a day waiting for results and I'm always on the loo or wretching with sickness with worry. I can't help but read about it and now I don't know if this means that it has spread to an organ or bones or whether it's just contained in the breast . Sooo scared and I'll with worry. Any info at all greatly received x
