I discovered a lump in my breast in the shower a week ago and was sent for a mammogram and USS on Monday. Previous scans 18 months ago had been clear, but this time a large mass was discovered, very fast-growing. A core biopsy on Tuesday morning showed a high grade malignancy tumour, suspicious for lymph invasion. I see my cancer surgeon next week, after Easter break, and find out what my path will be then. The BCNA website is so wonderful. I have been reading the posts from Chris, Samantha and Chipmunk - who like me has just started her journey. The strength and courage in the blogs is inspirational, and has helped me so much already to cope with the shock and fear that hits you like a train with the diagnosis. (how can this be? I am so healthy!) Have a Happy Easter all of you wonderful women - any advice would be a blessing - I am so lucky to have found you. Michelle.
