Re: Scared I got breast cancer

Hi sweet pea, i hope you phone the doctors Monday and demand you referral notes, that way you will be able to book you appointment yourself!!! Your gonna have to keep onto then. I wouldn't worry yourself because the statics suggest your gonna be fine! Chin up hunnie , let us know when you have contacted your doctors. I don't know if its different in different countys but im in the midlands my doctor said she would refer me l, she told me to come in later that day and get my referral notes so i did pn the notes it tell you what to do you have q password and tells you you can phone or book online, i booked my online or was so easy i just typed in the details and i can up with two appointment times both in the two week time frame. If you can do that your worry wil be over soon. Even though im still waiting for my scan but that's because im young and classed as not at risk. I hope i have helped.

Re: Scared I got breast cancer

Hi sweet pea
So sorry you are still waiting for an appointment. My heart goes out to you. You should not have to go thru this torment for such a long time. Do not apologise for off loading, that it why we are here. If you have not heard by Monday, chase it up again either via your GP or hospital and be adamant you want to know an appointment date ASAP. Explain how longed you have waited and the distress you have been going thru. I know it's hard but you should have had an appt by now. He'll, I will do it for you if you want. It makes me so angry that appointments aren't booked in the 2 week time frame that we are promised. I am sure you will be fine and I totally understand re your twin girls but you will be around and see them grow into young ladies and be their for them for all the special occasions, boyfriends, marriage, grandchildren etc. Just keep positive you will get thru this, I promise.

Re: Scared I got breast cancer

Hi ladies it's me again still no appointment I'm driving myself mad with worry to the point of giving myself a headache I have convinced myself that I have something wrong with me family are telling me nothing's wrong but I'm not so sure I've got new aches and pains but I think it's die to stressing myself out I look at my twin girls that are 3 and think what if it is something and that I won't see them grow up I'm in tears just writing this. I lost my nephew last year and l thought that life could be so cruel so you can see why I am doubting things sorry for such a long post but I had to offload xx

Re: Scared I got breast cancer

Hey sweetpea. My story is much like yours. The pain in my breast, in my armpit and down my arm. Anti inflammatory pills didn't work either.
Like dizmoo I was beside myself, worried to an extreme I've never encountered before. I Googled everything and made it worse.
But everywhere I looked they said pain was good. Painful breasts rarely are cancerous.
I got the all clear Wednesday 🙂
Phone the helpline here or speak to your gp. They may be able to reassure you or offer you advice xx

Re: Scared I got breast cancer

Sweetpea, I've just read your last comment and needed to write this. ( I've not read all of your posts yet). But please, I know it's hard, but try not to panic! I've just done three weeks of burying myself, thinking the worst and googling it all. On paper, my symptoms didn't look good. But today, I went to the breast clinic. Trust me, I was beside myself ( just look at my posts on here) but I came out all ok. No answers to the breast pain and a lump that turned out to be a cyst. In fact they found two! All benign!! It can work out ok. If you need to talk about it though and offload, then here is good, the help line is good and you can message me. Take care xx

Re: Scared I got breast cancer

Hi sweet pea, in sorry to hear you been feeling so stressed out i hope your feeling a little better the waiting is tough i know. I hope you get your referral soon. I had mine yesterday and the dr was a women thank god, she seemed shocked when she felt the lump and asked me my age, she couldn't really say much and now i have to go back in a few weeks for a biopsy. I've tried to forget about it, i got used to the pain and I've stopped feeling it because thinking about it make me feel like crap. I just want to say 9 out of ten women who find a lump are not cancerous, i take great comfort from knowing that could be me and you. The figures suggest we will be fine. Best wishes and if you ever need to talk you can private message.

Hi sweet pea try not to worry i know how you feel in only 19 myself and im in the same boat my referral is just over a week away and i haven't been sleeping well i only been waiting q few days but feels like forever and its quite uncomfortable and painful but I've took comfort from knowing it can be cause by lots of different things they have loads of info on this website, i am definately taking someone for moral support as in nervous haha. Try to stay positive and if you ever want me message me i wont mind because i feel its better to talk about what ever you feeling rather than keep it in.

Re: Scared I got breast cancer

Hi sweet pea
Well done for booking your GP appointment. Hopefully now you can get some answers. I would say try not to worry, easier said than done! I have been in that waiting room and I know nothing anyone said put my mind at rest. One minute I was ok the next a gibbering wreck. That's normal. You will get thru this waiting game. Keep yourself busy, as soon as you have a negative thought, put it straight out of your mind, and try to thing of something positive. again easier said than done but worrying is such a wasted emotion and so draining. I am sure you will be fine and soon this will be all sorted. Just take each minute/hour/day at a time. You will get through this. If you want to vent just pop back here when and if you need to.
Big hugs

I have just come back from the dr sand she has referred me to the breast clinic I am a anxious person anyway but I am so worried

Re: Scared I got breast cancer

I am sorry if I sound so forward, but if think you need to cover all areas. Have you checked your breast for lumps, discharge, change of shape? Anything that looks/feel unusual to your body? It could be simply a pulled muscle but you just need to push your GP to take this to another level, just so you can have piece of mind. I have had a mammogram, it does not hurt as I thought it would and is over in a few minutes. End of rant but I really want you to have piece of mind. Take care.

Re: Scared I got breast cancer

Hi sweet pea.
Phone the GP mon morning and demand an appointment. Asked for a mammogram appt just to put your mind at rest. I am sure there is nothing sinister to worry about but you need piece of mind and if your GP advises more tablets, ask for the mammogram, again just for piece of mind. Once that is done and you are given the all clear then you can eliminate one thing and concentrate on why you are getting these pains. Let us know how you are getting on and know we are here to help you as much as long as you need us.

Re: Scared I got breast cancer

If you are not happy then i would go back to the doctors. Have the tablets helped at all? Have you examined yourself for lumps? I have pain and a lump and i'm getting seen at the hosptial next friday.

Re: Scared I got breast cancer

Hi sweetpea, why not go back to your GP and discuss  the fears you have, They could send you for a mammogram if they feel there is a need.
