Possible cancer freak out
« on: November 19, 2018, 02:46:23 pm »
I am really nervous, I found a lump when I was doing my month exam and I am freaking out. I made an appointment with my regular doctor to have her check it out, and to see what steps I may need to take next.
Can anyone please tell me the steps they went through when they found out? I cant sleep and i cant concentrate on anything but this lump.

It's okay to be nervous but just breath your way through it. I was very nervous when I felt a lump. I really didnt want to tell anyone and didnt for a while. Tell your doctor it is an emergency to get in asap, and they will probably refer you to doctors that will be able to do tests. Is there history of BC in your family?

Unfortunately yes there is a history. My grandmother had breast cancer but was able to beat it! I know it can be hereditary so I should have been checking this way earlier I just didnt think it would be me
