I have a strong family history of breast cancer and other cancers. I go for a yearly mammogram and ultrasound (i'm 33) and upon the last ultrasound i was found to have a lump in my right armpit. The consultant advised I was to come back 3 months later for a re-scan to check measurements again. Approximately 8 weeks ago I noticed a lump in my neck (again on my right side), my doctor dismissed it as nothing to worry about. I went back for my re-scan just over 2 weeks ago and the lump under my right armpit has grown quite alot, i now have one under my left armpit and she scanned my neck at my request and said it is the same as the ones under my arms. I also have a lump in my right leg on my shin which seems to be getting bigger, this has been there for around 6 months but i never thought anything of it. They did a biopsy on the lump under my right armpit and a week later the consultant called to tell me she fears it is lymphoma and has sent the biopsy on to a further pathologist. No explanation as to why and 8 days later they still dont have the results back. I am going out of my mind with worry. Why would it be sent to a second pathologist?? has anyone else had this?? I know im almost looking for the answer as to if I have Lymphoma but it doesnt look very good so far does it???
