I went to have my biopsy last Tuesday. They did another ultrasound, decided that whatever it was was clearing on its own, from the progression through the last 3 ultrasounds the duct was less dilated. No need for a biopsy. I haven't had any more symptoms.
So they have given me the all clear, it turned out to be nothing nasty.
I've had some weird breast symptoms the last few days. 4 instances (that I've noticed) of spontaneous (ie, not squeezing) bloody discharge from one breast, just a small amount.
I know it's not normal and I am planning to go to the doctor this week. I'm not breastfeeding and haven't for about a year now.
I spoke to an acquaintance who is a medical professional and very knowledgeable about breast cancer, who said that I needed to get to the dr asap, like first thing in the morning (I had been planning to go Friday...)
Until recently my family history was zero, but last year my little sister was diagnosed with breast cancer at 29, she's still undergoing treatment. The brca test was negative but the geneticist said (in writing) that such a young onset of such an aggressive cancer is very likely genetic - they just haven't found the gene - and that I should be very vigilant because I'm now high risk.
So, I know that when I talk to the doctor, likely all hell will break loose and the next few weeks will disappear with tests.
I am exploring my own feelings of reluctance to make waves, disrupt my life, and decide whether to go to see my GP tomorrow. My friend will hassle me relentlessly until I go!
So, wise people of EB, how freaked out should I be?
