Re: Biopsy

Things have obviously changed since your surgery so this mammogram really is Like having a first one again I suppose and something that may look suspicious isn't always so.

If they can't be certain it's nothing to worry about they will always do a biopsy but the majority will come back benign so hang on to that thought, cancer is often the least likely reason for a breast lump. 

 

Its going to be a couple of weeks before you know for certain and you don't want to be spending that time in a state of anxiety, I know you can't put it out of your mind but try and keep it in perspective, whatever the outcome is going to be is already decided because if it is breast cancer then it is and no amount of panicking is going to change that.

 

So many of us here are though diagnosis, treatment and beyond and doing fine, you will cope and be ok to if it comes to it Xx Jo

Re: Biopsy

Yes I’ve had a mammogram before but because of recent breast reduction they can’t compare it
There is a suspicious area that needs biopsy ... I do go next week but I’m just literally a mess

Re: Biopsy

Hi, I'm sorry you are going through such an anxious time, I know it's really hard not to worry but it could all still be absolutely fine. 

Have you had a mammogram before? Often initial ones may show up something that although may be perfectly normal but with nothing to compare it with it needs further investigations.

 

Try not to over think easier , said than done I know but it will just make an anxious time so much worse X  Jo

Biopsy

Hello everyone

Im very new to this and at the momment I’m very confused and numb.... I had a breast reduction on the 7th May that I paid private for and abnormal cells were found in the tissue taken away. The histology report was lobular hyperplasia and no cancer found

on being referred to breast clinic a few weeks ago they were happy with me but arranged a mammogram for yesterday.... a suspicious area shown up and I’m going back next week for biopsy .... I’m absolutely terrified and am thinking the worse .. I won’t get results until the following week - I feel scared as I wasn’t expecting this at all ...my partner has been fighting lymphoma for the last 18 months and isn’t good at all ... so I feel lost and very low

the wait is going to be hell .....thank you for listening x
