Oh mate I am sorry to hear it was not the news you wanted.
There is no more I can add to what the otherlovely ladies have said, we are all here for you whenever you need us. You can rant, rave, cry, it does get easier when you have your treatment plan as you know what is going to happen and when.
Sending you loads of hugs
Hi Saffle, I'm sorry you didn't get better news today but we are all here to help support you through this, it's a bizzare surreal time and takes some time to get your head around.
knowing the full picture really does help so once you go back next week and know exactly what the plan is you will feel better I promise!
It will be the HER2 protein results they will be waiting on , these do seem to take a little longer to come back.
I was oestrogen positive and HER2 negative, never did know my progesterone results.
Of course you will get through this, your fight will return and you will deal with whatever you need to do, keep talking to us we've been through it all between us! Xx Jo
You have our support Saffle - everybody here knows just how you are feeling right now - its horrendous. I am really sorry to hear that you have had this diagnosis, but you are in good company here and with so many who have been before you, and are off out there living life. Let yourself feel how you need to - allow the anger, fear and tears to play out, then come Tuesday you will have a treatment plant put in place and feel more in control and ready to begin the process of getting rid of this unwanted invader. Anything you want to know or find out will have been experienced by people here, so ask away and once you know your treatment plan you will find threads relating to the steps. x
Just wanted to pop on your thead and wish you all the best. Come back and let us know how you got on, and 'whatever' the outcome we will be here to listen. x
It is quite usual for the bruising to come out after a biopsy plus the aches and pains will be from that and the stress you have probably been under
Just take each day at a time until you get your treatment plan, honestly it will be a lot better when you have that as you will know exactly what you are dealing with
Hi Saffle, I'm sorry you didn't walk away with better news today and of course you are going to be very upset and now you have to deal with another week of uncertainty hanging over you, we totally get it and have all been through it , it's the pits! The week between biopsy and results was the worst it ever got for me personally , once I knew for certain it was breast cancer I felt much more in control.
Try not to jump too far ahead, they are good but they don't always get it right, get a definite diagnosis First before you run on ahead thinking of surgery and treatment , deal with each stage as and when you need to, it's far too overwhelming when you look at the big picture and at the minute it's all speculation.
We are here to talk to anytime so don't sit around panicking , ask us anything you want to know, one of us will have the answer and remember we have all been diagnosed with breast cancer and had to deal with what you are right now so we understand more than most Xx Jo
That is good and please do not worry that she is doing it under the 2 week rule she is being proactive which is really good. As the GP says it still could be ok and nothing sinister ,even if they say they want to do a biopsy, they will be being thorough which is really what you want.
Let us know how you get on when you get your appointment.
Hi Saffle, you've come to the right place for support, we have it in bucket loads here! You are seeing your Gp which is the first step and something we urge everyone who comes though the forum with worries to do right away.
Your Doctor certainly should take you seriously no matter how many other times you have been with different issues, they are generally on the ball with breast lumps and you should be referred under the two week rule to your local breast clinic for further investigations as you have a palpable lump, I know how hard it is not to worry and a referral certainly doesn't mean that you have cancer , the majority who go come away with the all clear, try not to let your mind run riot , just deal with one thing at a time 😊
Let us know how you get on Xx Jo
Welcome to the forum where you will get loads of help and support from the wonderful ladies on here.
Well you have done exactly the right thing to do in getting your GP to have a look at it. There are other breast conditions, as you probably know, that are not necessarily cancerous, but it is always best to get any change to your breast checked out for your own peace of mind.
Let us know how you get on tomorrow and we are all here to support you in whatever way we can.
