Waiting for results

Hi, I found this forum and just need to offload a little. I had thyroid cancer 16 years ago and thought that was all in the past. I turned 40 a few months ago and my endocrinologist suggested I have a mammogram. I got the call on Tuesday to say they’d found something and ask me back for a biopsy. My endocrinologist confirmed there is a possible link between thyroid cancer and breast cancer, particularly when Hashimoto disease was present. I know it’s only a possible link and that it’s unlikely to be anything (or so my husband keeps telling me) but I’m totally freaking out. I can’t think about anything else, I’m not sleeping and have just yelled at my kids. I didn’t think I’d have to go through this waiting again...

Re: Waiting for results

Hi Jode,

Agreed the waiting is very stressful and at times all consuming, I don't know how you are feeling but I do know how I felt when I had 3 recurrences.

The beauty of this Community is that you are not alone and there is support and help available.

Stay strong, but tears are fine as well.

Wishing you all the best a fellow traveller.
