Re: Found a lump

Hi Ladies

 

My appointment is over and it was good news - loads of cysts, and not just in the one breast but both. Loads of them have been aspirated and apart from bruising now I'm home, it didn't really hurt at all.

 

I can't describe how relieved I feel, but wanted to thank all the lovely ladies on this forum who've sent messages of support and wished me luck as it really did help.

 

di473, I know you get your results tomorrow and hope its good news. I will be thinking of you.

 

Just mex, I know your appointment was today the same as me and again, hope you've now had good news.

 

Macgirl, your appointment is awhile away I know, but again best wishes for positive news for you too.

 

Finally, if anyone reading this is torturing themselves like I did convinced that the lump they can feel is cancer please try to stay positive. On paper my lump ticked all the boxes for something sinister, but it wasn't. Over the last few weeks I've wasted too much time looking on google for answers that only the clinic could provide and would hate for other ladies to make the same mistakes as me.

Re: Found a lump

Hello,

Im new to this website and just learning how to use it. Im 24 years old and female.  I wanted some others opinions on an issue im having. About 3 months ago, I was feeling my breasts for lumps. I found a hard lump that doesnt move in my left breast right about the nipple. I went to see my doctor and he sent me for a mammogram and Ultrasound. The mammogram showed an abnormal mass so right after, I got an ultrasound. After the ultrasound, I waited for the results for about 2 days. My doctor called me in and the report said ''Probably Benign'' Birads 3 and that I need to come back in 6 months for another ultrasound. It said it is a 2mm Tumor but my doctor said its only a 4% chance of being cancer because of my age. This really worries me because my dads mom died of breast cancer years ago and 3 of my dads sisters have had breast cancer and thankfully, all his sisters survived. I told my doctor that it scares me because it does run in our family and he said since its not maternal (my mothers side) that hes not too worried. But that's not okay to me. On top of that, I have been feeling so exhausted for the last year and never understand why, sleep doesnt help, I just always need more sleep and still feel so exhausted, its as if I havent slept in days when I have. I feel like I have no energy all the time, its a struggle to even walk some days because I feel so weak. I asked my doctor for a biopsy just to give me a peace of mind and he said no, He will see me in 6 months and that he really believes its not cancer. I hope its not but im really worried.. Does anyone have opinions on what they think I should do? Should I wait? It could be absolutely nothing and I could be fine but what if im waiting and it is cancer and its spreading. Please any advice, I would appreciate! Thank you

Re: Found a lump

Hi M

 

Thanks for responding and I hope that you're over the worst of whatever treatment plan is in place for you.

 

It was good to hear that you had your biopsy results in a matter of days rather than weeks, as if I dont get the all clear from the mamogram another two weeks of waiting would be torture.

 

I read one of your posts on another thread to a really worried lady which was really positive, rational and calm and think I should take a leaf out of your book!

 

Thanks again - its reassuring to get advice from people who've been there.

Hi Macgirl,
Sorry to hear this is your third time. That cannot be easy.
Wishing you all the very best on the 29th.

Re: Found a lump

Hello JT,
It may not take two weeks to find out the results of a biopsy if you need one. When I had my triple tests, I was given an indication of what to expect after my mammogram and ultrasound. They had seen something 'sinister'. I had the results of my biopsy in three days.
Hopefully your hospital will be able to give pathology results sooner rather than later.
Good luck.

Re: Found a lump

Hello Justmex,
I hope everything goes OK at your appointment next week. The waiting is the worst and everyone is always frightened of the unknown. Once you are referred by your GP, the tests are carried out as soon as possible. It is good that you are having your lump investigated.
Wishing you good luck.

Re: Found a lump

From reading your posts it sounds as if you've had a nightmare trying to arrange the appointment and having to travel 50 miles is awful. I'm lucky as the hospital is a ten minute drive away (im in the south) - naively I hadnt even considered what it would be like to have to travel that far - poor you.

 

Thanks for your comments on the staff too. Honestly you'd think I had enough to worry about without stressing about getting my kit off!

 

Our breasts / lumps seem really similar and like you I keep questioning how I could possibly have grown a lump this big and not noticed it sooner. Without doubt the waiting is the worst as your brain goes into overdrive thinking the worst regardless of the fact that statistically we have far better odds of getting a good diagnosis.

 

Keep in touch and let me know how things go, i'll be keeping my fingers crossed for the both of us x

Re: Found a lump

I too I am going through this. I've been here twice before also. Please don't worry about getting undressed as the practitioners and staff that I've come into contact with were all very sensitive and made the whole experience as easy to cope with as possible. The waiting is so very difficult isn't it? I saw my GP on the 4th April but my appointment is not until the 29th. There just isn't any appointments available at my local hospital so I have to go to a clinic 50 miles away. All the very best xxxx

Re: Found a lump

Hi

 

9am and the letter says the appointment could be between 2 and 5 hours long!! I'd like to think thats because they're going to be ultra thorough but i expect its just that theres going to be loads of us all sitting there going through the exact same thing and they have their 14 day target to see us all in (mine is exactly 14 days since seeing my GP). It says i get the results of the mamogram / ultrasound there and then and tbh I am pinning all my hopes on them looking at the images and saying 'nothing to worry about' however in reality I guess they'll take a biopsy and i'll have another couple of weeks of waiting.....

 

Don't know about you but the other thing that's playing on my mind is the whole thing of getting undressed infront of loads of people. I know they see it day in and day out but it still makes me nervous as i'm not particularly confident without my top on! Silly really in the overall scheme of things.

 

I really hope we both get the news we want, and I'll be thinking of you too x

Re: Found a lump

Jt sorry you are experiencing this too. What time is your appointment Tuesday. Mine is 1:40 ill be thinking of you too x

Re: Found a lump

Hi

 

In a very similar situation to you.

 

I have an appointment at the breast clinic next tuesday after finding a huge lump in my left breast. Like you I have large breasts so how much of the lump I can see of feel changes according to whether I'm sitting or lying and I have spent the best part of the last 10 days either googling breast cancer or probing my breast to see if the lump feels bigger or has somehow magically disappeared (thats yet to happen ...!).

 

Like all the posters say the odds are in our favour that it won't be cancer, and we should try not to worry.

 

I will be thinking of you next week and keeping my fingers crossed that we both get good news x

Re: Found a lump

Jaye, thanks for your reply. Sorry to hear it was not good news for you. I hope i find out next week what it could be.

Re: Found a lump

Hi justmex.
Most breast clinics are "one stop clinics" so you'll have all tests done at the time. If a biopsy isn't needed you'll get your answers same day too. If a biopsy is needed then you generally have to wait for the results. How long you have to wait differs between
hospitals.
Try and remember that 90% of all breast lumps are benign and no cause for concern.
Try not to worry too much, and please stay away from Dr Google. It really does make things worse and most of what you read on there is out of date and just plain inaccurate.
Good luck sweetie. Stay positive xx

Re: Found a lump

Hi Justmex

Not sure if it's the same at most hospitals but as you say you will have an examination, perhaps another mamogram and an ultra sound.  I also had a biopsy done.

I asked the question, did they think it was BC and was given the answer that 'it looked worrying' so I pretty much knew it was at that appointment.

I then went back a week later for the result of the biopsies and had it confirmed.

 

Hope that helps

Re: Found a lump

Hello Justmex, of course you are feeling frightened, that's only to be expected. At the moment you don't know what , if anything you may have to deal with. Please remember that the vast majority of breast lumps/ problems turn out NOT to be BC. We have all been terrified at first, as we are not in control of the situation and the waiting is horrendous. Once you know what the lump is you will start to feel a little better and IF (it's a very big IF) it is BC please be reassured that the treatments today are very effective. In the mean time please do not use Dr Google, you will only scare yourself witless and get all sorts of out of date or inaccurate information. Try and keep yourself as busy as possible to take your mind of the lump. If you have had a referral and are in England you will probably be seen within a couple of weeks. Keep us informed as to how you get on, ask any questions you like, we are a very supportive bunch on this forum. Good luck with your appointment, sending virtual hugs ((())) take care Pat x

Found a lump

Hi im.new here.
I found a lump (which is more like a large swollen muscle) on my right breast. Found this on tuesday and went to the GP on Thursday. When i wentcto the GP i expected her to be feeling around looking for my lump/swelling but as soon as i took my bra off she noticed it straight away. I didnt know it was that prominet. She has sent a referral to the breast clinic but im still yet to receive my appointment.

Like everyone who finds a lump im thinking the worst. Im in my early 30's and i have young children and im scared and ive not even received an appointment date yet. Im trying to keep busy and not think about it but the wait is agonising.

Im large busted (40G) so when i have my bra on i cant feel it. As soon as i take my bra off i can see it and feel it which is frightening. When i wake in the morning and see myself in the mirror and see the lump it takes my.breath. Does everyone feel like this.

Sorry for the long post. I keep telling my husband and my family that im not worried at all but really im terrified.
