Hello everyone, I have felt the need to reach out for support during this difficult time.
I had a routine mammogram carried out at start of May, I'm 45 so booked it myself as a body MOT ... I have spent the last year suffering with gallstones and finally got my gallbladder removed in April. So just wanted to check everything else was in order.
I had a sore breast for a while but put it down to periods, hormones etc. Anyway, the pain intensified after the mammogram and didn't go away from that moment on. I got the dreaded recall letter a few weeks ago... and we have a 5 -6 week wait for breast clinic appointment!
I called my doctor as pain in boob was really niggling me - he said he had my mammogram results!! And that he could see a mass in my sore boob, a density that had an x marked beside it and that I was going to need a biopsy! I asked him was it big or small and he said he didn't know what size the lump was. I have done nothing but panic since getting that news. I'm a single mum with 2 small kids and am just so overwhelmed by it all.
I booked a private consultation as no way can I wait another 4 weeks for breast clinic now! My appointment is next Monday x
