Hi! It turns out it was a 'gladular plaque build up' so all is well, thankfully.
I am so appreciative of everyones kind words and feel extremely lucky for now to have had a weight lifted. This forum demonstrates the power of support and there are some incredibly empowering ladies on here.
Good luck to every one of you! I only admire your bravery and strength and have most definitely learned a lot from this experience.
Best wishes to all! X

Oh that is absolutely fantastic news, and yes think on the positive they can not find anything and also that they have you on their radar now so should and that is a big should, there be a problem in the future it will get dealt with very quickly
I am so so pleased for you. You were not worrying over nothing, because you did not know what it was all, you knew was that something did not appear right to you, it is so much easier to think oh it will go away and that is when things can go wrong, for the sake of a few hours in a clinic you are now able to carry on knowing that things are ok. Go and enjoy an evening with your hubby

I'm back from the hospital after my appointment this morning. I was seen first by a young doctor who took some details and then examined me. They asked me lots of questions with regards to my other breast where they found cysts two years ago too (which slightly unnerved me.)The young doc said he couldn't feel anything untoward and would get the consultant to come and have a look. I remembered the consultant as I'd seen him on my previous visit two years ago. He had a feel and came to the same conclusion. He did say though, that to be sure, he would send me another appointment out in four months time and if nothing changed, pain wise, he would then do a mammogram.
So, relief ... yes. Of course, it will still be in the back of my mind that it may still turn out to be something. But, I've been checked today, nothing has been found that concerns them and I'm now on their radar, so that if something does turn up in a few months, then it should still be in a relatively early state.
i do feel slightly guilty that I worried over nothing, when there's lots of ladies out there fighting this disease for real. But I am a worrier! Three times in the past I've had scans for possible cancers and I've been lucky. These experiences have been life changing, as I now never take anything for granted, and do what I can to to help raise funds to find cures (Race for life and donate monthly). I am lucky and I'm very grateful for this.
Thank you to everyone on here who has commented and helped me though. It's been amazing that you've taken time to help xx
Right, Newtothis, let's get yours out of the way tomorrow! Thinking of you xx

I have sort of been lucky although it has lengthen the time of my having them because of the xmas holidays ther were some weeks when I was only having them 3 or 4 a week, this week is the first 5 day I have done.
It is amazing the inner strength you find when faced with something like this and how you can cope, I am sure you will be fine, you have that strength because I can hear it in your conversations with me xxx

My friend is just about to start her rads and I was amazed you have to go every day! You're almost on the home straight then with yours and I've no doubt it will be a relief when this part is over. Will think of this when I'm being scared! People can and do go through it and come out the other end. Xx

thats the beauty of this forum, we have all been there so can offer you the support you need to get you through this and hopefully everything will be ok BUT if there is something there to be dealt with you are in the right hands and again, we will get you through that if necessary.
Really try and rest my dear otherwise you will just exhaust yourself for tomorrow xx
Well I am number 13 of my rads tomorrow, so only 7 to go after that and I can not wait for the 19th January when i do not have to make that journey every day and I can start getting things back to normal again.
