Hi all. Last week I had my annual mammogram, because sadly my Mum got breast cancer in her early 40s, and her sister had it in her 50s.
I have no lumps to feel etc, but the one side has an abnormality on the mammogram. They phoned me yesterday. On Friday I am having a more detailed mammogram and an ultrasound.
So, another rollercoaster begins! And awful timing, just as we were about to start the access fertility donor egg programme.. put on hold for now.
I am fairly calm. I know that for ladies under 50 mammograms aren't perfect, and there are a lot of 'false positives'. Hubby has waves of panic, and boy, if I ever doubted it I know now he loves me so much. I am very lucky.
So hope it is ok! If it is ok, this will certainly be a shot across the bows to me to do more to keep healthy/decrease my risk.. better diet, minimal alcohol etc.... I also am eligible to have the brca gene tested but haven't done it yet. Will get it done.
Big love to you all xx
