Just a quick update. Spent 3 hours at the hospital yesterday. The lump was a cyst and in fact they sound another during the ultrasound. Both cysts were aspirated and when I saw the doctor he was satisfied that's all it was and discharged me. A huge releif for me BUT I'm acutely aware that I'm very fortunate. It really touched me seeing so many ladies in the clinic yesterday, and I'm going to make to a donation to this wonderful charity that does so much to support everyone, especially those who have a different diagnosis to me.
I wish eveyone all the very best, and can't thank you enough for the support you've so generously given to me.
Take care, Emily x
Hi Katie and Angie,
Thanks so much both of you for your kind messages, I really appreciate that you took the time to post.
Feeling very scared and sick this morning but I think the antipication/waiting can be the hardest part.
Will let you know how i get on.
Hello, I'm new here....
I went to my GP last week after finding a lump and I've got an appointment at the breast clinic on Thursday. Seems fast to me but good I don't have too long to wait I guess. I'm only 39 and know that there can be lots of causes of breast lumps, but it's still scary.
Apparently it's a 'one-stop' clinic and that I could be there up to 3 hours. Does anyone know if I'll find out what the lump is on that day? I haven't got anyone who can go with me, so it's going to be a pretty stressful time.
Thanks for reading.
