Hi there. I know being recalled after a routine screening (part of the pre-age 50 group being screened in our area) but I still feel incredibly anxious. The letter was written yesterday and so was waiting on the doorstep when I got in from work. At that time on a Friday all advice lines are closed and I'm left to wait over the weekend before I can talk to anyone. My husband is working abroad unti Sunday night so it's just me and my 10 year old son. I feel so alone. I had no concerns about my breasts and regularly self examined but I'm worried about problems deep within the breast that I can't detect. Any advice is welcome.
