Shar I totally understand why your panicking, it's the unknown right now isn't it? To be honest I'm that focused on my mammogram being ok anything else will knock me for six. I guess I'm clinging into what the lady told me who did the mammogram in the mobile unit x
Not very good Betty,why am I so negative my mums so disappointed with me ,think the doc yesterday thought I was nuts,because I have had a stiff back below my shoulders I asked him if it could be cancer ,he reacted and said it does not spread like that and was amazed I was thinking this!he said cancer of the breast is curable these days do you think I am panicking?i have no swollen glands under my armpits or tenderness and no leakage,just this lump plus a tiny one in left breast ,sorry to go on Betty ,hope your ok too? Xx
Yes it's the waiting Betty,since joining this forum I cannot believe how many people are worried about this disease!let me know how you get on,I am waiting to find out if this is benign or cancerous,I think it is cancerous they do the biopsy to be sure,!
Sorry hear your having such a stressful time it's the waiting that's the worse isn't it. I've just spoke to a lady at the breast clinic she was trying to get my results earlier but because I was unable to attend the breast clinic and only the mobile unit I won't be getting them till next Thursday or Friday.

Hello betty thanks for your reply,I am not coping that well,every ache and pain I am thinking it is cancer,I hsve spoken to my doctor today and he said they are great now at treating breast cancer ,the clinic I attended yesterday was just like a cattle market honestly,so many women in and out,it was not a friendly experience and this has brought my anxiety and panic attacks on again,same symptoms as when my hubby was diagnosed with cancer 3 years ago,doc has given me a prescription for something to take to get me through the week ahead,,hope you keeping your chin up Shar x
Hi Shar i wish now i had managed to get to the breast clinic my appointment was for this morning as well but now ive got to wait but never mind. Im 47 and peri menopausal but im coping ok with it just have the odd mood swing here and there.Always had more trouble with my breast and do have yearly mammograms anyway due to family history. Keeping everything crossed for you that it will be a positive result x
They will be back next Thursday,sorry your not too good,I suffer from anxiety too,it's amazing how many people are diagnosed with breast cancer,please go your clinic I could have turned away yesterday,especially when some women who had got their results were crying,I wanted to run out and scream,!they told me the lump was solid and big and must have been there sometime,on the plus side I have no leakage or symptoms,only hot sweats through night due to menopause ,keep in touch love me xx
Hi Shar sorry to hear your feeling so low , I was supposed to go breast clinic but because of anxiety issues I've gone the long route so have to wait ten days. When will your biopsi results be available? Take care x
Hi yes I had a mammogram yesterday so just waiting for results. I actually went to see my dr for other breast problems but he wanted to do a breast exam and found a small lump but I had never felt one myself. Think he was just being cautious as I have two sisters who have had breast cancer Betty
Hello everyone I am new to this and worried sick,I visited my doctor last week and I have been referred to breast screening as my right breast has a lumpy moveable lump weird. I stopped my periods about 8 weeks ago as I am 52,has anyone else experienced this ? Shar!
