First Mammogram

Just need to share with someone... I found a lump while doing a breast exam last month, and had a mammogram and ultrasound this morning to check it out. I'm currently hoping for the best, but bracing for the worst- we lost a much-loved aunt to breast cancer last year, and I'm just so scared right now

Don't panic. A lot of lumps turn out to be benign.

Waiting for medical results is horrible, you did the right thing in getting the lump examined straight away.

Hope everything turns out OK

Thinking of you during the wait. That is sometimes the hardest part.

If and when you can, please try to update us.

Giant hugs to you

Would love to be able to sit on the couch for a few days, get a good book, and do NOTHING!

It's hard but try not to worry. I've had four benign breast lumps, most involving surgery to remove them but I went through WEEKS of fearing cancer. I'm sure there's nothing I can say to calm you down because nothing worked on me. Just know that you are not alone in this.
