Don't know where to turn - breast lump referral

I've been worrying since the middle of October, and only got a couple of hours sleep last night. I'll take some paracetamol if it gets to bad. The consultant and everyone were really nice. Xx

It is a long time to worry isn't it. My sleep wasn't too bad last night but it hasn't been great over the last few weeks because of it. 

Hopefully you'll get a better night's sleep tonight xx

Scottishwifie, I'm in the same situation as you, except a year older. I had the core biopsy on the same day, go back next weds to get results.

The consultant read out the reports, and in passing mentioned fibroadeoma but nothing was explained and he was really quiet and mumbly. I wish I'd asked him to explain as not sure if he was just giving an example of what it could be, or saying they think it's that.

I'm in such a mess, saw my gp today as my head and face keep going numb with pins and needles. I was convinced I had breast cancer which had spread to my brain. Sane moments like now I know it sounds ridiculous, but I am struggling to think clearly.

My neck muscles are so tight she said it's being caused by stress and also causing the pins and needles, so have physio tomorrow to try and loosen them up.

My nan died within 3 months of getting breast cancer 2 years ago as it went to her brain, so that's all I keep thinking. But I also need to remember that was her 3rd time, she beat it twice in 30 years.

A week tomorrow and I get my results, cruel making someone wait 2 weeks! X

I can totally understand the anxiety and stress. Talking about it helps and now my family know that I have been to the clinic it's easier to talk I wasn't wanting to worry them. I will get a letter in the post when I get the needle core biopsy I forgot to ask how long it will take. And then 5 to 10 days after for the results. They are confident that it's fibroadenoma /benign lump which is good and just want to double check with the needle core biopsy.  Try and do things you enjoy I have a fantastic wee dog that loves cuddles. Listen to your favourite music watch your favourite programmes go for a walk. I have to admit I have been comfort eating a lot with chocolate.  Thinking of you hope the results are good news.

Hi Vixy I am still waiting for my appointment to come through for my core needle biopsy. They think it is benign with the  scans and fine needle aspiration so it wont be an urgent appointment  the wait is driving me potty. The quicker it's done and over the better. Lump is still there it has only been a week since my last appointment. Thanks for asking will keep you updated.

The wait must be hard but hopefully it won't be too much longer. I guess if it were anything that needed treatment they would be intouch soon so hopefully it's a good sign. Keep us posted though. 

How are you all now?

My letter came yesterday and it says about fibrocystic changes which must explain some breast pain I'm having. 

Hope you're all ok xx

They never sent me a letter. He just told me there and then that it was good news and just fatty lumps.

I requested a copy of the letter on the form I had to fill in when I arrived. There was an option so I thought I'd tick it just incase xx
