    Firstly, go bk to yr doctor , they should have by now the report from the hosp. Stay.   2). Tell yr doctor about the lump that you've found. 3). Tell him about yr family history re breast cancer.  4). Tell him how scared you are. And you need to be seen urgently in yr local breast clinic.  Ask for a referal letter to be sent to them.  U5). Phone yr local breast clinic explain to them that your Dr. Is sending a referal letter, and  that you would like to be placed into the cancellation list. Try and be seen a.s.a.p.   Please I know it's easy to say, but try not to worry.  And please let me know if I can help any more.  I had myself a scare bk 2months ago found lumps had tests etc turned out to be cysts (breast cancer in family) my mam.  Liz xx

      Thank u for your reply ive been to doctors they didn't realise the hospital had wrote to them saying they want me to go to family breast clinic. So if i hadnt gone to doctors they wouldn't of seen lettet it was just on my notes and i went to doctors 8 days after they got the letter. So when i went to doctors he check felt the lump wants me to wait till next week to see if lump goes due to me having had an infection. But if still there on Thursday i have to ring up leave a message and he'll contact refer me straight away. Its the not knowning it plays on ur mind. Thanks once again for your reply xx

    It is the not knowing that's terrible.  When I was going through this my mam at the time was ill in hospital, so I couldn't tell her.  So luckily I told my aunt and she came with me for the tests. I couldn't tell my dad or bro. Too Embarrassing.  Turned out to b cysts. So I've got to keep an eye on them.  Please let me know how you get on. And if I can be of any further help please contact me.  Liz xx
