A lump next to my nipple I'm scared

Hi

 

I'm sarah I'm 35 and have 4 kids, I found a lump next to my nipple I had to aching pain in my breast and its sometimes itchy and theres also I slight dent where the lump is but also not sure if that's how my breast was before. My mind is in over drive at the moment, I went to the doctors and saw the nurse who felt it right away and said it's about 1 cm and a half and that breast is quite bumpy. She called the doctor into look before sending off for the 2ww doctor agreed with her. Now I'm just waiting and it's going to be the lo gest wait ever. I cant help thinking the worse and I feel so alone. I'm all my kids have that's the part that scares me not having cancer but been forced to leave my kids if it's the worse case serinor. I just needed to write this to get it off my chest because I cant even described how scared I actually am.

Hello love, you don't need to describe how scared you are , I know exactly what your feeling...

This is the very beginning, the worse part with all the waiting and tests...you will get through this....don't forget...it isn't something until it is something.....8/9 out of 10 lumps are benign....I know your scare, but try and take it a day at a time....your appointment will be through soon ❤️

Hi 

 

Thank you for your kind words, it's so hard not to google, it doesnt help I work in a doctors and see how many people have cancer and get diagnosed. Just feels like I'm in a space of time that's not moving and im living my own nightmare in my head. This is going to be the longest 2 weeks ever. Hope you are ok and thank you for replying xx
