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

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

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

Well I am home from my night away and the realisation that my appointment is tomorrow has sunk in. I literally feel sick. I am petrified now. The pain in my left breast has intensified whilst I've been away and it's not been so easy to ignore it. I just want to run and yet I need to know. But I don't want know to either. Its going to be a long night
