Hi there. I posted this in the pre-diagnosis forum, but thought I’d ask here too.
I found a large-ish lump in my calf muscle in late October and went to my GP about it on the 1st November, he was fairly dismissive but referred me for an ultrasound which was 5 weeks later. When I went back for the results, the report said it was “a large intramuscular cyst” so I was immediately relieved. I had a follow up appointment with a consultant at the benign lumps and bumps Clinic in February, and my GP hadn’t attached the ultrasound results to the referral. I explained what I’d been told about the ultrasound results, and he examined me but said he wasn’t happy and sent me for an mri. I got the results of that last Thursday and was told the mri showed that my lump is ill defined and nodular, and very deep inside the fascia and that there is also a second similar mass nearer to the bone. The letter stated that “these lesions represent potential for malignancy”, so the consultant has made an urgent referral to the Royal National Orthopaedic hospital which I’m waiting to hear about now.
I was just wondering what I can expect now? I’m not really scared as such, I just really hate being in limbo and not having a plan!
Thanks for reading. ☺️
