Thw waiting is the worst part. I had breast lump removed by surgery in 1982 and it was benign fatty tissue. I had little time to think if it was the owrst cause it was discovered and operated on in 3 days. 2 weeks for the results...long wait.
They reecently ..3 weeks ago after doing my routine mammogram every two years I got called back and went through more testing, ultraosunds and biopsy.....results took a week from biopsy and it is positive to breast cancer. the same week my sister found a lump and had it checked and it turned out to be a cyst. My mother was diagnosed three years ago and has been through chemo, and radiation. I am now waiting for my surgery and hoping that is all i need. I have caught two types of cancer in very early stages....one low grade and one high. With all this going on I still cant beleive I have cancer and keep thinking somoen has got it wrong...Ive read report so many times and checked the name. Its my report. Hope i can maintian my optimism and stay positive.
All i can say ...is check and have the mammograms. They do find things and not all bad. The waiting is so hard and stressful. I have had two weeks with little sleep
