    Hi,  It's natural to be nervous/scared, but not all lumps are cancer.  Good luck for tomorrow

    Remember it could be a cyst. I have cystic breasts which were always lumpy. My bc lump I found felt very different though.  Nothing can down play how scary this time is for you. I am still petrified. No matter what,  know this. A bc lump doesnt mean its the end of the road for you. It could be the start of a shitful journey though. If it is, atleast you found it and you will be swept off into surgery quickly. If it isnt well you will be more diligently checking for the future. I hope for you, it is nothing to worry about and you can put it behind you as a bad memory. Xxx

    Best wishes and hope all goes well. I have been waiting 8 mths  for diagnose for a nipple discharge. And in May found a lump had a needle biopsy and that came back begin but with some Buts so see surgeon next week to talk about open biopsy. So I hope yours is all OK and you will get through all the wait. Just breath and it will all work out.

    All the very best for your mammogram tomorrow. The waiting is the hardest part of this journey. I pray yours is just a cyst and not a cancer. No one chooses to join a group like ours

    Like Arnold Schwartzegger in the movie when he said he had a headache with the kindergarden kids and one said maybe you have a brain tumor and Arnie yelled its NOT a toomor. Time enough to worry IF your mammogram turns up breast cancer. Otherwise just chill and stay on course. <3
