I am sure what I feel is common. I found a lump on 7th June whilst I way away (in the UK). Went to my GP and she referred me. Was seen on 7th July and had mammogramme, ultrasound and biopsies. Was told on that day that 'yes I had cancer' and actually it was in both breasts. I went back this week expecting to be told when I would be having mastectomy and/or lumpectomy ops. In my head I was OK with this, I have had major gynae surgery so operations don't phase me. However was told I was having chemo for 18 -20 weeks. This actually floored me more than the initial diagnosis did! Waiting now to go to the Oncolgy dept/Chemo nurses for the next steps. Reading lots on here but it's a whole new language I need to learn!!
