hi everyone just need to get my mind in order : ( i finished my chemo and had 4 weeks of rads which ended in april this year, my hair is growing back and i am starting to feel more like normal (as normal as can be anyway ; ) but last night while taking a shower i felt another lump in my right breast this time : ( managed to get in my docs straight away and he said yep there's something there so booked for a scan on monday so i want to ask is it possible for the cancer to return this quickly after treatment, i had a grade 3 cancer in my left breast,and i am on tamoxifen. but my mind is running away with me at the minute and cannot think past the cancer has returned even though it could be something else. sorry if it sounds a bit muddled :) love to all you lovely people xxxxx
Hi Louise - I'm not surprised you're worried - I'm no expert, but as you know, it could be any one of a number of things, a cyst, a benign tumour, a recurrence or a new cancer, so there's no point trying to pre-empt the findings.
If you're really concerned, try to get something from the dr, like diazepam, that will help you just get through the next few days. As you know from the last time, it's the waiting that's the worst part....
Thankyou mistymoley i think i will have to go back to the doctors and get something to calm the nerves : ) i no there is a chance it is something else but yes the waiting is the worst part :( xx
Love Lulu xx
