Facing fears

17 May 2018 09:04

Hiya im 23 and have found a lump next to my rib just over a year ago i went to see the doctor and told me this was definitely not cancerous ive had a full term pregnancy through living with the lump found it rather uncomfortable again so took my self back to the doctors to have a ultra sound scan to rule out hernia and syst. My images from the ultra sound scan was send straight back to my doctors and thats when he told me i may have cancer . ive been for a mri was laying in there for a hour and i have my results monday 21st . im not quietsure how to approach things as im a mother to four young children 5, 4 , 2 and 5month old. The surgeon who im seeing is specialises in muscualskeletol tumors and orthopaedic.. Can anyone give me any advice. My own doctor has told me if i need anytjing i am to go down and pull him aside and he will drop anything . witch has worried me ever more as if he knows what im dealing with but not telling me . sorry for this long post xx
