Hello everyone, My first post here! Its been a trying time so I was wondering if anyone could help. I am waiting for an appointment with my GP but didn't want to take up valuable time. I'll give you a brief summary. Lost my materal grandmother, mother and a sister (aged 26) to breast cancer, father to lymphoma (not sure if relevant). I am 30 years old. Last year, I found a lump, which they decided to remove due to history, and it came back with columar cell changes with atypia. Found another lump in the same breast this year. Again they decided to remove it. The histology shows the same. The consultant wants to see me again in 6 months but mentioned that they may want to keep a closer eye on me. What will happen in 6 months? Scans? MRIs? She mentioned that I may need annual MRIs and to bring the age of mammos to 35/40 instead of 50. If, for instance, I don't find any symptoms myself, will I then be discharged? Unfortuantly, she only looked at the histology report as we were finishing so I kind of went from being discharged back to my GP... to further investigations (for life, it seems) without a chance for any questions! Thanks for reading Kelly

Hello everyone, My first post here. I've been, like many of you may have done, skulking around in the forums, reading posts that may be similar to my own situation before decided to actually post something. I've had some itching inside my left breast (not on the surface, from within almost) and a slight burning sometimes. So I thought I should have a feel around. Low and behold, there in the lower part, deep inside, was a very hard pea sized lump. I can't move it (I don't think, its hard to tell) and it feels kind of attached to my chest wall. Went to the GP, who referred me under the TWR. I was seen today and not a lot was said. Lots of umming and arrring. She found the lump without my help and referred me urgently for an ultrasound before sending me on my way. So, now, like lots of you, I'm waiting for a letter or phone call with an appointment. Two days before christmas! Its a bit rubbish, eh? Tell me your stories, if you feel like sharing. Or your symptoms/signs if you've had it confirmed. I lost my maternal grandmother, mother and sister to BC and it really sucks.
