My mum passed away from breast cancer at 51 when I was 22.
In January I found a lump which seemed to appear out of no where. It was quite large and didn't disappear after my period so got it checked. Yesterday I had a specialist look at it and he said it feels like a fatty lump and most likely benign. That calmed my nerves quite a bit. He said P3. Then I had to have a ultrasound which made the ultrasound person a bit concerned and she had to do a biopsy as she wasn't sure what was going on. She said my lymph nodes look fine though so I guess that's positive. I spoke to the consultant after and he said the ultrasound lady says P3/p4 but will have to see what the results come back as as to what happens next.
Now today I am so worried it's something sinister and can't stop getting upset (that time if the month approaching isn't helping!) I think it's bringing up all the feelings from my mum's illness and passing as I don't think I dealt with it at the time. I have two young children and I am just so scared this is bad and they won't grow up with me.
How do you deal with the wait? I have an appointment booked for two weeks time for the results
