Hi Babz,

First of all, it’s good you’ve been referred to get it properly seen to, although obviously, it doesn’t feel like it at the mo. 

What usually happens at the clinic, is you’ll see the Dr who will do an examination, an ultrasound may be done & if it’s clear what it is, you’ll be told then - the vast majority of lumps turn out not to be bc related. A mammogram may be done & if it is not clear what it is, then a biopsy is done - but it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bc if one is needed. If a biopsy is done, there is a further week or 2s wait for the results. 

It helps with the wait to carry on as normal & avoid google as any search will lead to bc when it normally isn’t, so it’s not reassuring! 

If you want to, let us know bow you get on.
