Phew, that is wonderful news, I bet you got emotional and we all would in that position, massive relief.

 

Take care and thank you for posting as it is posts like this that give assurance to other ladies coming on here to see that it does not always end in being diagnosed with breast cancer.

 

Hopefully you are going to do something nice tonight to celebrate xxx

Re: lump plus more symptoms..

Great news! 🙂

 

In less than 5 seconds of the ultrasound the radiologist told me "so you have a cyst" - i got a bit emotional haha which i am so embarrassed about now! But i was just sooo relieved! I feel a bit stupid but even the lovely nurse was telling me its totally natural to assume the worst.

 

Really can't thank you all enough for the kind words and advice. xxx

Re: lump plus more symptoms..

Hi Gia,

Presumably you have a breast clinic appointment, if it is clear what it is on ultrasound, you would normally be told then. If on the off chance, it's not clear what it is, then a biopsy maybe done, which means there is another week or twos wait for the results, but hopefully, it should not come to that. Even if a biopsy is needed, it does not necessarily mean it's bc. 

Especially for younger women, bc is the Least likely reason for the breast change, normally there is a benign reason for it.

Re: lump plus more symptoms..

Thanks both 🙂

 

I dont have anybody to go with, i feel like id prefer going alone anyway.

About them giving me information - so they are going to tell me after the ultrasound scan? I had an ultrasound on my knee once (which is obv different) but they never told me anything!

I really hope i am on here tomorrow with good news.

Take someone with you tomorrow if you can.  If you can't, then take a notebook and write down what they say - if there is anything significant for them to say.  It's so easy for everything to go in one ear and straight out the other if you are in an anxious state.

Right here we go a pair of the tough pants is winging their way to you to get you through tomorrow,  They have very deep pockets and thats because we all need to get in there to support you.

Please please stop googling, like everything else you will hear the worst cases but there are lots of ladies on here who have found lumps and they have turned out to be nothing to worry about. 

 

You will get through tomorrow, if you dont want to take your mum is there a friend that can go with you, it is good to have someone there to offer you moral support and also as another set of ears, because it is amazing even when we are given good news but are anxious how much we miss hearing. 

 

I know you dont want to go but think of it the other way, if you dont you will always be worrying what it is.

 

Sending you loads of hugs

Re: lump plus more symptoms..

Hi ladies,

 

Thanks for the other replies. I have my ultrasound scan tomorrow and i dont want to go! 😞

I'm worried sick, i was fine for a while but i have been googling about 27 year olds suddenly getting breast cancer etc.

I have had breast pain the past couple of days which im kind of happy about (oddly!) because i've read that cancer doesnt usually hurt (although i suppose it varies)

 

I am keeping this to myself because i dont want my mum to worry so i am going alone tomorrow. Do you typically get an answer after your ultrasound? - They tell you; ok its a cyst etc or ok its cancer?

 

Thanks again xx

Hi Gia, listen to the ladies on here.

If it's a lump then get it checked out. Don't poke and pride at it as it will make it painful.  Your mind will be in overdrive worrying, so the sooner you have it checked,the better. X

Re: lump plus more symptoms..

Helena gave you a very good response.  I have a 27 year old daughter, so I couldn't just read and ignore you!

I just want to add a couple of things.  Firstly your GP was right to refer you - the only way of telling is via a mammogram and/or ultrasound (younger women tend to have more dense breasts, a lump may not show up on a mammogram but will show up on an ultrasound), secondly nothing sinister will happen in the two week wait - I understand that it will feel like forever for you, but please don't worry that things are getting worse while you wait.  If it's breast cancer (which is highly unlikely) then two weeks is neither here nor there.

Hello and welcome.

 

What you are experiencing perfectly normal because your anxiety monster has taken over your rational mind and you are thinking that every ache pain means that it is cancer and that it has spread.

 

It is very unusual for ladies of your age to be diagnosed with breast cancer and there are many other benign breast conditions that it could be so try as much as possible to put it out of your mind for now. 

 

We always advise new ladies to avoid Dr google as there is so much out of date and misinformation on there that you could scare the living daylights out of yourself.

 

With rational head on, if you think your breast is going to ache because you keep prodding and pushing it.  Your breasts could have always been the way you describe and quite a lot of ladies have one breast that is slightly bigger than the other .  Please do not feel stupid because you arent, you are scared.

 

Keep coming on here whenever you need support as there will always be someone on here to help.

 

Let us know how you get on when you get your appointment through.  You will get through the next couple of weeks and we will be here to help.

 

Sending you a hug

lump plus more symptoms..

Hi all

 

I (27yr old female) found a lump in my left breast last night (although i think i felt something a few weeks ago but stupidly ignored it) and i cannot work out what the lump feels like at all! Sometimes its prominent, sometimes not, sometimes its moving and sometimes i feel like its attached. Sometimes it hurts and sometimes it doesn't. I'm so confused 😞 I went to my doctor today and she literally didnt say anything but has referred me for an ultrasound scan.

 

Anyway, my main problem is that; just the lump i could deal with - actually this morning i was thinking; ok lumps can mean anything! Its probably nothing BUT since coming home and properly inspecting my breasts i feel like i have too many other symptoms that make it seem like BC. For example, my left breast seems to have got bigger than the right and i am noticing a darker brown ring/patches around my nipples - i never noticed this before but maybe they have been like that for ages?! I feel stupid for not knowing but i dont know if thats how they were or i am seeing things. Does anybody know if the right nipple would/could get affected even though the lump is in my left breast?

 

 

I dont know what to think - i cannot wait the 2 weeks for the scan! I dont have anyone to talk to so just thought i would post on here.

Thanks. x
