Thanks for all the advice re having the lump removed or not. I have a few weeks think about but will more than likely opt for it to be gone. I just wanted to say Thank You to all of you for taking the time to be so helpful and supportive in a stressful time.
I wish you all the best possible outcome for where you are at.
Love and hugs
My personal advice to you is to get the lump removed. This will give you complete peace of mind, otherwise you might be tempted to keep wondering "What if".
What a relief.
I think they are probably just confirming diagnosis. I think that it should be removed as fibrodemas can sometimes get in the way of other things. I had mine removed, it contained abnormal calcs, but I think I would have had it removed anyway.
Well today finally arrived. I had a mammogram & ultrasound. I then saw a doctor and he said he thinks its benign and a fibrodema. YAY! I was SO pleased!! Then he said they would do a core biopsy which they did (that click!!?) and I must come back in 3 weeks for the results and talk about removing the lump. I went from being all pleased thinking its all okay. And Im sure it is. But then started wondering if they think its benign why do the biopsy? Im assuming this is just a precaution to make sure?? I was also wondering if it is benign and Im assuming it is, what are peoples views on removing the lump as opposed to leaving it.
I feel very tired now. The stress of the waiting and last night and today has taken its toll. But I feel relief as Im sure if they think its okay then it is. So I just wanted to share it all with you and say thanks for all the support!!
Hugs to you all & to those waiting on appointments/tests I wish you all the luck.
