I found a lump in my right breast which made me think "oh what's that!!!". I panicked, called the GP and she said it's probably something benign, likely a cyst. She said she can't confirm because she doesn't have ultrasound so I will be sent to the breast clinic for further investigation. I went today and they found the lump, said it could be a cyst so did an ultrasound. I could tell on the ultrasound it wasn't a cyst, which they confirmed that there is a mass that they need to biopsy. They also wanted to be thorough and do a mammogram first. This point I had a panic attack because why were they doing a mammogram unless it was suspect. Had the biopsy which was fine. The doctor said we don't know what the mass is, it could be benign or it could be cancer. He said if I knew it was cancer I'd tell you right now. From the images it looks like 1 lump. So I panicked more. He said, I'll see you in a week to discuss the findings. I said should I bring someone? He said yes. He said don't worry about it until you know what you're dealing with.
The experience really shook me and now I have an anxious week wait to see what it is. I can't help but worry. I'm 34 with two young kids. I'm so terrified.
I was looking for reassurance from them but I got none. It was serious. I'm finding it hard to concentrate, I haven't eaten much at all, I'm supposed to be working but can't focus.
How do you cope waiting for your results? Especially when they won't give anything away?
