I am 30, with a family history of breast and ovarian cancer. Aunty diagnosed with breast cancer at 45, in remission. Great Aunt passed away from breast cancer at 50. Grandmother and Aunt both passed away from ovarian cancer in their early 50's.
So I recently discovered a lump in my left breast.
I went to the docs today, she measured the lump, it is 3 X 2 cm approx, at about 7-8 o'clock about 3cm below my nipple. The doc said it is moveable, so could be a fibroadenoma but it is quite hard.
I am going for an ultrasound tomorrow but in the meantime I am freaking out!
Please reassure me.
UPDATE - Hi, I am just coming into update that it has been confirmed that it is breast cancer. I will get the full results back next Wed but at this stage it does not appear that it has spread past the left breast and lymph node. Once the full results are in we will work out a course of action.
Thanks again for all your kind words and offers to chat via PM for those of you who have been/are going through this journey, it is soooo appreciated.
