Hi everyone, I am currently waiting for the results of biopsies taken on Wednesday from an 8mm lump found during my yearly mammogram. A sample was also taken from a slightly enlarged lymph node too. I have a family history of ovarian and breast cancer which is why I am having yearly mammograms at age 46, but I am freaking out somewhat. I feel like I have been waiting for this to happen actually. Me and my sisters have had hysterectomies due to the ovarian risk, but I feel like the clock has been ticking and that the big c would get me sometime soon, (my mum died when she was only 50 from ovarian cancer)...this year is 30 years since she died...sorry, feeling quite negative about it right now...
