I have survived 100% Estrogen positive twice over the years, the last time was 2016 I had complete mastectomy on my right breast, chemo and am currently taking tamoxifen. When diagnosed a 2nd time I asked to have a double mastectomy however I was told that they would not remove a healthy breast and that the chances of getting cancer on the left side would be very slim.
In the recent few weeks I’ve had a gland come up in my neck (left side) and my left breast and nipple feels different, no lump just a bit tender (I know I’ve been prodding and poking every day which I know doesn’t help). I’ve finally plucked up the courage to make an appointment with my consultant this weds but I’m so scared and am having horrid flash backs. Any advice would be really appreciated x
