Hi ladies. I am waiting to get ct on lump I found just below my collarbone near sternum. Not a panicker but I’m almost certain it’s my cancer spreading … soooo…. Wondering who has had this and what were you’re treatments etc ?
just trying to wrap my head around what I may be up for 
also have noticed pain in back but have broken ribs (6weeks ago) so assume that’s from that. Am very swollen in face hands and feet every morning and black circles around eyes. Nauseous. Hungry but not hungry. 
Currently on tamoxifen and zoladex and venafalaxaine 
thanks 😊

    Hi @Newbie3312,

    Noone has responded yet so Ill let you know people are out there.

    I dont have metatastic cancer, nor have i had a recurrence so may be unqualified to help. 

    You dont say if you already have metastasis or if your original cancer is recent etc. 

    Sometimes we worry. Its hard not to after the trauma of a cancer diagnosis but what you are worrying about might not be. You are getting checked which is really the best course of action. 

    Hope all is well and the ct scan shows nothing untoward.

    @MicheleR thanks for reply. 

    Lumpectomy 2 years ago and some lymph nodes removed which were clear. 

    Have spoken to surgeon since my original message and off for an ultrasound tomorrow and see him Tuesday for results. 

    Hope you are well 😊
