Re: Urgent referral appointment on Monday

Good luck tomorrow Poppet.    I am off to the hospital for my ultra sound and mammogram.     Weird hoping they find an explanation for my symptoms and at the same time hoping they don't.    I hope if your test results are positive that it is caught  early.   Best wishes.

Re: Urgent referral appointment on Monday

Thank you so much for you good wishes and positive thoughts for tomorrow. It all seems so surreal - I know it's happening yet it all seems like a really bad dream. Although the extremely bad bruising and ache that I have on my boob from the two core biopsies makes it very real. Family are being so supportive and having this forum with so many lovely ladies to share with has helped and will help me so much.Trying to keep busy today but just know I won't sleep well tonight.

Will come back Friday and let you know results.

Hello Poppet,
Thanks for letting us know what happened today. I am sorry the hospital told you it is likely to be BC but it is good that it has been found early.
You will have an anxious few days until Friday but once you get the biopsy results you will have a better idea of what you are dealing with.
I am sending positive thoughts to you and good luck for Friday.
Stay strong.......the waiting times are difficult but after surgery you will be treated quickly on this roller coaster ride.
Peace and Positivity,

Re: Urgent referral appointment on Monday

Well it wasn't good news but hopefully not as bad as it could have been. Had appointment this afternoon and had a mammogram, ultra sound and a core biopsy where two samples were taken. Consultant says the lump is quite small at around 1cm and she is very sure that it is a cancer. I have to go back on Friday afternoon for the pathology report and a treatment plan. She thinks it will be surgery with removal of the lump and the lymph nodes which will have further biopsies -within the next 2-4 weeks and then radiotherapy.

I think I am in shock and I feel quite numb and it feels like a bit of a blur, as it all seemed to go quite quickly. I do feel lucky that it seems to have been caught early and if I hadn't had the indentation/dimpling I am not sure when I would have checked and found the lump.

Will be another anxious few days now waiting to find out what type of cancer it is.

Must say my daughter was an absolute star supporting me all the way. Hopefully my husband will be able to come with me on Friday to get results. Still don't know when to tell my poor Mum, she will be having her 3rd chemo on Wednesday.

Re: Urgent referral appointment on Monday

Sorry Poppet.   I read 'severe endometriosis'  as Endometrial cancer as I had.    My brain is a fog with lack of sleep and worry as I wait for my scan appointment on Friday .    I am finding this Forum a great help though and discovering I am not alone is reassuring.    I hope you have a nice  morning.    Whatever happens this afternoon you know you are looking after yourself really well.

I hope all goes well for you today.   It is such a scary time and it  must be worrying with 2 family members needing caring for at the moment.    Having had a cancer diagnosis before especially puts you back in a dark place .   I hope you get some answers today.  I wish you luck.

Wishing you luck for your appointment Poppet.
I hope the results will be what you want them to be especially as you already have a lot to deal with emotionally with your mum's recent diagnosis. Please come back to the Forum to let us know how you get on and remember whatever happens, there are plenty of ladies on here who will support you and give advice based on their own experiences.
Peace and Positivity,

Urgent referral appointment on Monday

Well after a very anxious 2 week wait, my one stop appointment for triple assessment at Breast Clinic is almost here. 

 

Just over two weeks ago I noticed my right breast had an indentation on the lower inside - the skin does look slightly dimpled. It is more obvious when I lift my arm over my head. On further investigation, I felt a hard and quite large lump slightly above the indentation. I have no idea how long the lump has been there as I must admit to only checking myself every now and again. 

 

I saw my GP on the Monday and agreed it wasn't right. In fact that was all she did say really. She went very serious and just said I would get an Urgent Referral within two weeks.

 

I am 44 and after having a total hysterectomy with the removal of both ovaries, due to severe Endometriosis in 2011, I have been on HRT ever since.

 

My husband and grown up children (22 & 21) have been wonderful and are all taking the optimistic view that it will be a cyst and nothing to worry about. I have been up and down obviously but now I am petrified!

There is no family history of breast or ovarian cancer but unfortunately my Mum was recently diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma stage 4 and has just had her second lot of chemo. I haven't told her about my worries as she already has so much to deal with. If all ok she need never know. She has just shaved her head as her hair fell out so much this week. I have had to be strong for her when inside I am going to pieces.

 

My daughter is coming with me tomorrow afternoon as my husband had day surgery on Friday and much to his regret won't be able to sit around that long. I would really prefer him to be with me and not put such a burden on my daughter but she is adamant that she is taking me. I can only hope that all is ok.

 

I have been reading posts on here for a few days now and it has informed me and encouraged me to hopefully prepare me whatever the outcome. I will come back and let you know how I get on. Wish me luck!!
