I had my treatment at the Nottingham Breast Institute. When I had the biopsy, she found a node she didn't like the look of and biopsied that too. That was a hint to me that I had BC. However, I think they will tell you if it definitely ISN'T BC. My daughter in law went shortly after me and her 'lumps' were hormonal, and she was told straight away. If it is a cyst, you should know there and then. All the best.
You should get an indication if you ask although every hospital is different. I asked on my appointment and they did tell me in phrases like, a worrying lump and suspicious - so I did know on first appointment
Hi jo2797 welcome
I was told on the day of my first visit. After a needle biopsy. But the nurse said it "seemed like cancer" they won't tell you unless they are sure so my clinic gave the results one week later.
everyone at the clinic understands the complete terror of waiting and will try to be straight with you.
