Mammogram. I’m actually writing this post in the middle of February. About two weeks ago on a Friday evening I felt a lump, no scratch that, I found a MASS a big ‘ole 8 centimeter mass. Too late in the day to call the doctors office, so I did the most obvious thing, I planned my funeral, WHAT?!! Did you really think I was going to just not dwell on it? HELLO! Have we just met?
Doctors appointment arrived a full 10 days after discovery. Mammogram showed not just one large mass but a second suspicious spot. Off to get an ultra sound. Ultra sound confirmed large mass (HELLO?!? It’s the size of a golf ball..I confirmed that last week by myself!) Confirmed the small spot that I can not feel along with a third ‘suspicious’ spot. Blood work, visit with doctor again and referral to a general surgeon for biopsy. Now I’m waiting yet another week for that visit. (Stupid holiday!! Don’t they know I’m FREAKIN’ out over here!?!?!)
It’s February 18th. My appointment isn’t until the 22nd. So NOW I’m calmer and I have convinced myself I just have really lumpy boobs. I have way too much to do to have breast cancer.
So ladies, stop reading and check the TaTa’s. If you are in a public place I will let you take a rain check till you get somewhere private. Check them!! DO it TODAY!!!
What’s odd is I do a monthly self check. I always have. This mass literally came outta no where! And in less than a month!!
Hopefully, when this posts I’ll have really great news to end this post with.
I do have great news to report!! I really do have lumpy boobies. Lumps don’t necessarily mean you have cancer!! So thankfully I can report the ta ta’s have…….. No Cancer!!
Wooooo this is weird……. I wrote this post in February and 7:30 a.m. today (4/15/13) I’ll be in surgery having the lump removed.
