It is a vile disease but breast cancer is amongst the most treatable so that is something to be thankful for I guess!! Keep talking to us and we will help you through this horrible waiting period, we all agree that's it's the worst part of it all! Xx
Hiya, you have taken the first step in seeing your Gp and getting a referal, the general guideline is to be seen within 2 weeks so don't be thinking it must be bad as you are being seen urgently it's just how it is, i lost my mum to breast cancer so the word urgent was used but I was seen within the 2 weeks which I now know is the norm.
They are lovely at the clinics and treat you with compassion and kindness, I felt in very safe hands.
The usual is to see a consultant for a physical check then a mammogram and ultrasound and biopsy if needed, due to your age they may not do a mammogram as younger breast tissue is very dense and things can't always been seen on the images properly, they aim to try and give you an answer on the day hopefully that all is well but if a biopsy is needed then it's a week or so wait for results.
There is no way of knowing what's going on for sure without having these tests but the majority of ladies will go home with the all clear, it really is only the minority of us who are actually diagnosed with Breast cancer.
I know it's hard with all the waiting but try not to convince yourself things will be bad as it's more likely they won't , keep yourself busy and tell yourself you won't worry unless you have too! Xx Jo
