Together we will beat cancer

Two weeks ago i went to the gp with a suspected lump/change in breast. He referred for a scan, the next day i got a call with a date for the following week. The following week came and i went for "scan" when i arrived was examined then told that he would refer for scan, that he could use the scanner in the room but may aswell wait for the bigger better one. I came away confused...... i have rang back twice found out initially that i am now referred for an ultrasound..... and that it can take up to 4 weeks!!! 


Im confused as many others havent described this as the process

Hi Shell,

Hopefully some of our members who have encountered similar issues will share their experiences and advice with you soon but you're more than welcome to talk things through with our cancer nurses on 0808 800 4040, Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m.

If you haven't done so already maybe you could let your doctor know what happened and see if there is anything they can do to clear this up for you.

All the best,
