Waiting to find out if I have breast cancer

I’m sitting in the waiting room now. I’m terrified. I have just had the nurse check and then the ultrasound scan - it’s one of those clinics where everything is done on the same day - the consultant said it looked like it could be a benign cyst but there was another mass next to it which was totally different, I didn’t even know I had it but it looks like it could be cancerous.

The biopsy will confirm either way but I just want to get up and leave sad

Sorry, I’m not even sure why I’m posting.

I've been there. It was cancer, they took it out and I'm fine now 18 months on. They work miracles every day.

Thinking of you OP thanks

Thanks everyone. I had the biopsy (they took quite a few separate ones)

But I now have to wait 7 days for the result sad

Apparently it’s if you’re only having a scan that you get your result there and then but you need to wait for the biopsy result. My mistake.

There was talk of stage 3 cancer amongst the consultants (there were a few that came in) but they didn’t say that directly to me. Just that it looks similar but COULD be other things. I’m now really stressing out about the result and googling, which I promised myself I wouldn’t do. Arghhh, I wish they hadn’t mentioned that, it almost felt like they forgot I was there confused

Step away from doctor google, I know it's easier said than done x

Hi Reala, the waiting is the worst bit, the ABSOLUTE worst bit.
I do hope they have good news for you, but do head on over to the cancer thread if you'd like support from others waiting for results. Try to keep distracted and hold tight xx

I have everything crossed for you and I'm wishing you strength to cope with the wait flowers

BubblesPip Tue 06-Feb-18 15:56:35

I’m really hoping you get good news flowers Absolutely stay away from Google!!

Waiting is worse than knowing. I was 35. One bilateral mastectomy later I’m still here - and that was almost 11 years ago. Waiting was far worse than anything after.

Emelene Mon 12-Feb-18 14:01:57

Thinking of you OP, how are you doing? flowers

elportodelgato Mon 12-Feb-18 17:35:14

I was thinking of you too today. When are you due your biopsy results? Hope your weekend was bearable and you found some distraction

Ledkr Mon 12-Feb-18 19:48:59

Not sure if this I what you want to hear but I did have it and 24 years later I'm still here and doing fine.
It's not always a death sentence x

Thinking of you.
