Hi H3l, 

I just saw your post and wanted to wish luck for tomorrow.

I’m not sure what time your appointment is but if it’s later in the day then you’re welcome to give our nurses a call about this on 0808 800 4040. Their phone lines are open between 9a.m – 5p.m.

In the meantime, I hope this information on what may happen at your appointment will help.

Kind regards,

Steph, Chat Moderator

It’s not a cyst had biopsy and they said they are hoping it’s fibroadenoma a none cancerous lump but they look same as cancer on

Hello H3L and thanks for up dating us, 

I am glad to hear you have been seen.  They take the biopsy to be sure, but it doesn’t sound like they were too worried. I hope  the soreness settles soon. 

Waiting is hard – try to keep an open mind.

Call us if you want a chat or to ‘de-brief’.  

Best wishes,
