OMG. This is my third time to post the below long post.

Hi PauPau1963,

I currently live in Canada, to me, more than 2 weeks waiting for a breast clinic referral is not acceptable. I am stage 3A, grade 3 (the most aggressive grade) ER+/PR+/HER+ with 7/28 lymph nodes affected. I am not trying to scare you and I don't have the knowlege to say the small dimplings that you found is anything bad. But to share, in 3 weeks for the total time in waiting for the ultrasound/biopsy and the results, my family doctor (think similar to GP in UK) including me  myself could also feel 5 small bumps gradually developed (from 0) under armpit alongside my right breast which my family doctor explaint to me the bumps  were mostly the affected (swollen) lymph nodes.

I really hope you can push for an urgent referral and have the necessary tests/appointment in a timely manner.

I looked it up and Scotland and Wales you don't have the 2 week rule like in England and NI - that's very hard for you - you don't have to have lump to be concerned .I hope you get your appointment soon 🤞🤞🤞

Re: Worried lady

Good grief that's terrible it's hard enough waiting 2 weeks and even then if they do a biopsy it can take another week to get the results .

Re: Worried lady

Hi ,welcome to the forum .8 weeks seems like an awful long time to wait -I'm not surprised you are finding it hard -has your GP referred you as urgent most people are seen within 2 weeks.
