Not posted in a long time so a big 'hi' to anyone who remembers me.
Was diagnosed nearly 4 yrs ago. Had WLE, SNB and rads, (triple neg so nowt else,) and have been sailing along nicely til recently. 6 months ago I became aware of a 'thickened' area in the BC breast....had all the tests, mammo, ultrasound, 2 x biopsies but was told nothing suspicious found. My next check up is this coming Friday (9th). About 6 weeks ago I noticed a strange lump in my arm...just above the elbow on the inside. Grape-size and very hard. Thought I'd leave it and mention it at my forthcoming check-up. Then a few days ago I started having a poke around, (as you do!) and eeek noticed a definite saucer-shaped lump within the thickened area. Am now in deffo 'scaredy-cat' mode! Dunno why I'm posting this really...except that I haven't been able to share my worries with anyone this time. The 2 mates that I would normally whinge at both have loads of stuff going on in their lives and I don't wanna add to it. My main worry is that my original BC seemed to spring from another 'thickened' area and so I am dreading having a similar result from this one. Has anyone else had anything like this, (i.e. BC being diagnosed from what was originally just a benign thickened area??
