hi, I'm new to the boards, and I've been reading around a lot.
I found a lump in my breast a week ago, saw the Dr exactly a week after, and she has referred me to the 2ww urgent cancer pathway. So my appointment will be Thurs 7th in Oxford.
I keep thinking about this, thinking I could have cancer at 44. I've worked as a medical scientist for 15 years, including in the breast clinics, head and neck clinics, and screening cervical slides so I am no stranger to cancer diagnoses. Just not my own.
Plenty of family history with cancers, and breast cancer so this could be a definite for me. Bloody hell I hope not but maybe it is. I have decided not to tell my eldest boy who is away in Scotland at uni. I think he'd take it hard. I don't want his work and exams buggered up.
I have just just started a new job 6 months ago, I could do without losing it. Sigh, just so much to think about.
anyway, I shall update on Thursday.
