    Breast ultrasound wait

    Hi!

    Iíve struggled with HA specifically with female health issues. I STRUGGLED when Iím daughter was born with my breast and managed to make it trough without too much reassurance.

    Fast forward Iím 17 months postpartum and havenít breastfed in a year. Around July I found a lump near my nipple standing up that feels oval flat and rubbery. I can kinda still feel it laying down but itís most noticeable standing up. Itís big maybe the size of my pinky finger tip. I waiting for my secheduled annual exam like my CBT has taught me and my doctor has suggested I get a ultrasound. Iím so freaked out and to boot I canít get in for 2 weeks. Iím so worried that since itís near my nipple and prominent itís cancer.

    Any advice???? Iím trying to keep my wits about me as I wait.

    im sorry I do not have any experience with this but I hope your scan comes back clear. There are so many benign conditions which can mimic cancer symptoms.

    Ive got a scan next week for breast pain and I’m terrified. I hope both of us get a benign diagnoses x
