i noticed something wrong with my left breast (more dry skin relate which didn’t look right) and when I googled the symptoms, (as you do) I was shocked that it said it could be a symptom of breast cancer. One of my best friends, (same age as me) has recently been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma and is half way through her chemotherapy so I thought I would get my left breast checked out to be safe. I went to my GP appointment on Saturday where the female doctor examined my breasts to be told that my left breast was fine, (the one that I was worried about) but my right breast felt ‘lumpier’ than normal. I’ve been referred under the 2 week referral, (although I was told it’ll only get sent off on Monday with my GP appointment being on a Saturday) and Since then I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.
I came across this page page and thought I would see if anyone can advise as to what to expect at the appointment. My GP said not to worry but I think it’s easier said than done. She also said that more often than not those that are referred are usually told it isn’t cancer but I don’t know if she wasn’t just saying this to put me a text ease. Does it sound common/standard procedure to be told that?
Any advice is greatly appreciated and thank you for listening. I’m sorry if this is too much for this sort of post I’m just scared and unsure what to expect x
