I'm so sorry to hear that Hannah. At least now you know you can finally stop wondering and start getting on with the important business of treating it. Hope the poitive empowered feeling stays with you. The lovely ladies here will help support you through this too I'm sure. Take good care of yourself. Wishing you all the best for your treatment & sending lots of hugs x
I spoke to the breast care nurse today who said that they had found calcifications on the mammogram - which I didn't know previously. I asked why they took so many samples and she reassured me that it was because they need to test all the different parts of the calcification to get a proper picture of what is there. She also phoned to lab to make sure my results would be ready for Friday and she said that the lab have done the tests and they will discuss it at a meeting tomorrow with all the relevant people to agree what the results are. I feel much better after speaking to her. Every day of waiting is getting easier emotionally, but I am getting more impatient & wishing the days away!
My boob is also now going green from the bruising haha!!!
Just wanted to say i hope you get results soon and fingers crossed for you. I was told no way could i have a mammogram at 33 so really shocked to hear youve had them
It does annoy me when they say things like 24 is too young to get breast cancer, A friend of mine had it at 28 she was having the gene test as her mum and aunt had cancer and her her sister and cousin were all tested, They found lump when doing test, She had double mammagram as did all three as all had gene.and 19 years later is still around.Any breast problems should not be ignored by any doctor at any age.
They always tell you the worse senario re treatment, im a lot older than you, they did me, sounded like i would habe to have the lot. but was ;lumpdectomy, lymth node removal, and taxmoxifen and rads, No chemo. Keep us posted.june
it is vey difficult to second guess what the outcome of the biopsies will be. It is very unusual for someone of your age to get breast cancer but I do think your GP should have fast tracked your appt not left you for a month and having to chase it up yourself as it is extra worry and delay in getting results. Only 10% of those referred to breast clinics for further assessment actually have cancer so again the odds are on your side. It is good that they did so many mammograms and biopsys so at least when they do get the results they hopefully will be certain either way. They cannot lull you into a false sense of security by telling you its nothing and as you are being tested for cancer it is right to give you information about cancer and treatments available. It must be a very worrying time for you I can assure you this is the worst time as once you have the results even if it is bad news you can discuss a treatment plan with your team and get things moving and once again feel in control. I was one of the unlucky 10% referred to breast clinic - I didn't really think it would be anything and I went to all my appointments on my own. I was really shocked and surprised when I was told it was cancer as no one had mentioned this to me previously and I was totally unprepared when I got the news. At least your team have given you all information and telling you they are treating it seriously which again is good. I am sorry i cannot reassure you more but wishing you all the best and fingers crossed you will be in the lucky 90% and it will not be cancer. xxx
