    They are quick at calling one in. I saw surgeon in under a week from mammogram. Know you will be very worried and counting down the days to your appointment. No one can predict the verdict of your mammogram as only the consultant knows. They

    May want to do more tests to check you out. Try to be positive.

    You can ring Macmillan cancer care I did and they were really great . Be nice to know how you get on. Best of luck to you.

      I was very lucky as they found two tumours heading towards each other, which resulted in mastectomy and a reconstruction..

      Though it was hard and difficult to take in I am a survivor and still cancer free. It's been 5 years and 6 months now and so. gratefully it was picked up.

      Ty not to imagine the worse it may only be a minor thing or

      nothing at all. Waiting is the worst part of it. Your mind is in turmoil just now, but so many have been through this and come out the other side. Hear if you need me.
