Hi, I was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago now. Had MRI last Wednsday - rather an undignified position but not painful. Saw consultant yesterday and the option is R side Mastectomy. I told my other half twp weeks ago, he works away so is rather upset and doing long distance worrying. I told my sister last Friday and she is worrying but strong. Going to tell 88yr old worrier mum on Saturday - my sister is coming up to help. I do not think there is a good time to tell anyone but you need to be positive and almost dtrong for them. I think others worry more because they are not going through it all. Depending on which op you have it will be difficult to hide so I have opted to tell, you might need radiotherapy or chmo afterwards. Good luck with it all. I find that laughing at the inconvenience and messing about helps.
