I am 36 and I found a lump on my breast about a week ago. I at first was going to try and just ignore it, but I talked with my husband and he is my voice of reason and I called the dr and got in right away. I also should let you all know that I have PCOS and my last period was over two months ago. She felt my lump and said it was movable and she could put her fingers around it. Both good signs, but, the only way to be 100% was to do an ultrasound. I felt pretty good leaving the Dr. office and then I called to schedule my appt. at the hosp. and they were like ok we have you getting a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound and to just prepare you they might need to do a biopsy. I was like OMG!!! what is all of this? I called my Dr. and they told me it was ok and that this is all precautionary and not to worry, and they don't expect to find anything different than what they think, but because there is a abnormality it is all precautionary. My mammogram is on Monday as well as ultrasound to follow even biopsy if need be. I know after reading some of the other stories I am grateful this will all be done in one shot. My only problem is my anxiety. I have no idea how any woman can wait and wait and wait the way some of you do. I feel like I am at a standstill and nothing will be right until this is done. I can't eat or even enjoy anything at all. I have tried to get my mind on other things or think about Christmas, but as soon as I do I think what if it is not just as simple as the Dr. thinks I will ruin the holiday for my kids. I know this probably sounds foolish and all of this will be over either way on Monday, but I have myself convinced it is bad news....I have been for several days reading over these websites where people share their stories and it has helped me so much. Thank you all!
