I was referred for an ultrasound on a lump on my thyroid nearly two months ago. I wasn't worried as Ive had lumps and bumps scanned and for the scans to reveal nothing to worry about.
However, during this ultrasound was told that the lump has internal blood vessels and my lymph nodes on that side of the neck are very swollen. So I need a biopsy on the thyroid and the lymph nodes. I was told the biopsy would be 2 weeks away at least.
Since then I've just been waiting. Reaching the end of week 1 and no biopsy appointment letter. My dr contacted me via letter and asked me to book an appointment with her, saying it was non urgent but she wanted to discuss my ultrasound. I have book an appointment but it's not for 2.5 weeks. I have no one to talk to properly (I'm 35, single - recently dumped - and my family don't handle emotional expression very well). My mum died from breast cancer that she was diagnosed with at 39.
I had no idea there would be so much waiting and silence. I've been referred twice for breast lumps and everything was wrapped up in 2 weeks both times.
Does anyone have any tips? I keep meeting with friends and then zoning out.
