I am sorry that you are going threw this.:(

Hearing that the doctor thinks you have cancer would scare anyone. From what I read on your post is that they *think* you have breast cancer. Try to take it one step at a time. (I went threw this when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer) What tests have they scheduled for you?

It was a whirlwind of test for my mom. It happened so fast that if felt like our heads were spinning.

You need the support of your friends and family. Here in the US they had this support lady that took really good care of mom. Do you have that in the UK?

I know there is members that have gone threw breast cancer here on the site. Maybe they will come along and reply to you.

I am sending big, soft, gentle hugs to you.:hug::hug:
Hang in there sweetie,

Love,
Lyn

(((June))) Isn't life unfair. Wouldn't you think having lupus is enough:worried:

I won't say don't worry since that's impossible, but try not to look too far ahead. Trust the docs and take it a bit at a time. Sometimes a cyst is just a cyst.
My dad was diagnosed with cancer recently and the support and information we have received locally has been very good. I also have a friend and an aunt who are breast cancer survivors.

I'm here for you if you want to talk......pm if you like

Dear June, I am sorry to hear this. Monday is not too long to wait though it feels like ages.
Most Breast Care Units have a lot of support available. I would definitely enquire right now as you feel so bad. If you don't have any response I will see if I can find anything via my local Centre which is very helpful.
Here if you want to talk. Have two friends who went through this and came out brilliantly, but I agree having Lupus is enough.
Not going to give you a religious debate, but be sure God doesn't hate you.

Take care of yourself!

Hi June,

Any news like that must feel like a a ten tonn truck has swiped through your life.

I cant give you definate what to do's or what to think.

What I can say is the obvious, which is you need time to adjust, your reacting our of understandable fear.
There are a few people I know who felt much the same as you but felt a lot better about it once they got more informed and spoke to somebody who is or had gone through the experience.

My mum reacted the same way which is normal with such news. She remembers calming down and getting a feeling of more realism, which for her was its not a death sentance and began to focus more on what the process is and what can be done.

Its fear and panic....go speak to a professional who will tell you that you have every chance of survival with the correct treatment.
You need some sense of truth of this and reality

Hi June, I'm so sad to read what you are going through. I think you should get damn angry at God, at illness and at what's happening and then you can fight whatever it is that's there. anger is healthy and just shows what a fighter you are. There are many breast cancer survivors, don't forget not every cancer can't be cured. I know you are afraid and think it seems quite wrong for the medical staff to worry you like that. It could turn out to be a benign tumour....I do hope so. xxP

Hi June,

My positive thoughts will be with you during this difficult time. Hopefully the biopsy will turn out negative. In the event that it isn't we will be with you the entire way.

Take care,

(((((((( June )))))))) I don't know what to say, except that I don't believe God hates you. Life just is unfair and sometimes it seems that you just get dumped on. I'm so sorry you're having to live with this kind of fear and worry.

I don't know if you are dx with lupus or not. If lupus is suspected, don't forget to care for that part of your health as well as dealing with possible cancer. Two scares at once. Poor baby..... Wish I could just hug you.

Please try not to panic. Be gentle with yourself. If you have a good friend, lean on her. You're be alright. This may be a hard time for you, but you'll be alright.

Hugs,
Sunny

Hi June B,

Life is so surreal sometimes. I think I know how you feel. I haven't been on her for a while and I came on tonite because I've just been given the same news. I have an operation scheduled for the 12th Feb to remove my tumor, did the usual rounds of mammogram, ultrsound, needle biopsy and they want it out. It's bigger than a golfball, growing bigger and according to the doc, it's an "unusually slippery little blighter".

I feel like I've been hit by a freight train.
I seem to have spent the last two months up and down at one hospital or another for tests, xrays and if any more blood is taken from me, I'm asking for a refund.

Wouldn't you know it, everthing happens in three's. On top of the tumor, my bladder has become overactive so it needs to be "pinned" and the 4+5 vertebrae in my back has now joined the army of bones in my body that are doing as they please, and I've lost two more teeth and soon will lose another because the bones in my jaw don't want to hold them.

Sorry for moaning....no actually I'm not. I needed to get it off my chest before the load drives me to antidepressants.

What I will say is I know this is phase, and I know I'll get pass it, but just now all I want to do is stick my head under a pillow and bawl .

So just for today June come join me...after 3 now

1.....2......3.......aarhhhhhhhh

:wacko::eek::eek::eek:

thanx, I needed that
