Surgical breast biopsy

Hi All,
Over the last 6 weeks I’ve been undergoing tests to determine a breast area. I had a normal biopsy last week but it was inconclusive and the doctor now wants a surgical one. Tbh my mental health is suffering very badly now, I’ve convinced myself it’s cancer and every ache and pain it’s spread. I’m not really functioning properly as I feel like my life is on hold waiting for results and then what?!
Has anyone had a surgical biopsy? How was it?
And the fear, this constant all consuming fear, how do o control it?

Hello. I’m sorry you’re going through this. I had an inconclusive breast biopsy about two months ago and then a surgical one. The biopsy itself was fine. I convinced myself it was cancer and I understand how distressing it can be. My results were OK (most of them are). My only advice is to take one day at a time and try to do something to distract yourself. I wish you the best of luck
