Waiting for breast biopsy, out of my mind with worry

25 Jan 2021 01:02 in response to Esposito1979

 

Hi Sara,

I'm glad to hear that today is a slightly better day. Many of us have additional aches and pains whilst we are waiting for a diagnosis and our minds nearly always veer towards the worst case scenario. Once we get the diagnosis, many of these seem to settle down and we realise that they were due to anxiety.

I'm not saying that this is so in your case, but perhaps your doctors are waiting until they get your cancer results before they start looking for anything else.

I hope that all goes well with your MRI tomorrow and that your news is better than you expect it to be on Thursay.

Please let us know how you get on and remember that we are always here for you.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Thank you. I'm just glad today has come about and I can move forward. 

You mention that your pet scan lit up, if you dont mind me asking but had it spread to many places? 

Thanks

Sara

Hi Sara,

It had spread to the surrounding lymph nodes (breast, chest, under sternum) and my armpit, but was thankfully contained there. I never saw the scan, but was oddly intrigued and wanted to see it .

Have you had your mri or is it later today?

Hi. Thanks so much for getting back to me. 

It's at 6.30 tonight, then a core biopsy on my lymph nodes tomorrow and surgeon appointment on Thursday so it all seems to be happening this week. Not the best birthday but at least something is happening.

Hi, hope no one minds me jumping on this post.

im currently waiting for results of my breast biopsy, I'm 29 and went to the breast clinic as I found a small lump just below right nipple. I had ultrasound, mammogram and core biopsy with a marker insterted.

the doctor who went through my report said I was scored a 3 on both images and the consultant had wrote ?? Fibroadenoma/ Ductal lesion.

im going out of mind with worry, I can't eat or sleep I've convinced myself I'm going to given bad news. 
 

I did ring one of the nurses as I was panicking and I said do u think it could be a fibroadenoma and she said it had characteristics of one but they can't say for sure until the biopsy comes back, she also did say aswell that all Fibroadenomas are scored 3 as they can only be confirmed by biopsy.

I know that no one can tell me it's ok and I need to wait for the biopsy result but I just can't focus on anything I just keep bursting into tears.

Hi Laura. First of all - big hugs! The waiting is an emotional rollercoaster so I know how you feel. Fingers crossed it's nothing to worry about, but if it is we're all here to help.

Thankyou, the wait is absolutely horrendous I just wish you could know there and then.

I have an app to go back a week on Friday for results, do u think if I called up next week would they tell me if the result was back?  X

I think that really depends on each individual hospital/trust. You can always try, but they might not be able to say if it's back, or what the results are x

Hi so 3 years ago I was called for the trial mammogram aged 47 I got called back and had a core needle biopsy done after an anxious wait which is the worst time I received the good news that all was clear there was something there but it definitely wasn't cancer and wasn't ever going to be cancer and I was to just have 3yearly mammograms in future. Fast forward to this mammogram and I've been recalled again for the same thing this time they vacuum biopsied me which I won't go into detail on here but it was like medieval torture to me anyway. They told me that it was new technology and they needed to rule it out once and for all and they put a clip in. Now 2 weeks later they've rang to say I need the procedure done again because they didn't have enough of a good look at it!!! I'm terrified all over again as the appointment is for the next day
