Two weeks ago I had what I thought was a dental abscess and I lost the feeling in my lower lip and face. after many investigations they realised it was not dental related and asked about lumps and bumps. having randomly having a lump appear and grow to a very large size in 2 weeks I told them about my left breast. I was in for an emergency scan the following day where they confirmed a large mass that was not an abscess and have taken many samples. They also confirmed my lymph nodes were swollen and took a fine needle aspiration of the area. They have also booked in an emergency MRI for tomorrow. They have said it is not an abscess but a mass and will know more when they get the biopsies. I am petrified as what I have been diagnosed with in my face is numb lip and chin syndrome and when googling all that keeps appearing is metastatic breast cancer. I can’t sleep or eat and I just don’t know how I am going to cope with the news if it is true. My baby girl is also disabled and I provide her care, she needs me to be fit. I am having night sweats, have lost 1 stone in 10 days and I am in pain. I don’t have an infection though. I keep telling myself cancer could not have taken over this quick and said it to the doctor who then told me there are inflammatory types. I really am falling apart. I am so scared.
