Hello everyone. I've just been diagnosed with breast cancer today. I noticed a lump on my breast about five weeks ago and my doctor referred me to the breast clinic. I had an examination, an ultrasound and a biopsy. They were not worried at the time as I am 35, very healthy with no family history. I went for the results today and found out that the lump is cancerous. It's a small lump and has not spread to the lymph nodes. All I know so far is that they are hoping to do a lumpectomy followed by radiotherapy and 12 month of chemotherapy. I should know more next week and I will be going for a mammogram. It has been a real shock as I was not expecting it at all, thought it would just be a harmless lump. My sister was with me. We have had a very difficult few years as we lost my dad five years ago in a road traffic accident and my mum two years ago to lung cancer. She was diagnose late at stage 4 and only lived for two months after her diagnosis. It had been a very emotional day. I have let work know and told my best friend but it has been hard trying to get the words out. Going to let the rest of my family know this week.
