Do remember that 9 out of 10 referrals are not cancer. Although I have had cancer I've also had a cyst and lipoma, which are non cancerous, so it could just be something like that. If it's not the news you're hoping for, however, once you know it's easier to deal with when treatment starts. But fingers crossed it's a negative result.
In terms of the clinic, do take someone with you as it's such a stressful time and if you get the result the same day it would be good to have support, either way. At fast track clinincs they do try to let people know on the same day if possible but if you need a core biopsy it takes a few days - I was told it would be at least a week for those results. I knew when I was phoned at work after 6 days and asked if I could make an appointment first thing the following morning that it wasn't the news I was hoping for.
Try to pamper yourself, do nice things with your children and partner. Get plenty of exercise - it really helps. Try deep breathing exercises as well. DO NOT GOOGLE. Wait to hear what the professionals have to say. Also, the BCC helpline are wonderful. They make you feel so much calmer - so do give them a call, I'm sure that will help.
Please let us know how you get on - we like good news stories on here. There's been a few worried ladies on the Forum just in recent days and they've now had good news and are out and about celebrating. But if it's not the news you want you'll find lots of support and advice on the Forum from people who understand.
Take care. We're here if you need us.
