The wait begins...lumps between breast & collarbone
Scans scheduled for next week, already told will likely also be biopsied. When I saw the lump last week had no idea it could be associated to breast cancer. Don't think anyone has ever even looked at or felt this area, even during breast exams. About 1" above the right breast, 2-3" below collarbone. Largest near the sternum (visible part), and can feel it extending towards the armpit. Hard, immovable, no pain. Honestly no idea how long it has been there. Last mammo/Ultrasound had finally determined assymetries on the same side were likely just overlapping tissue after 3 years of monitoring. So anything possibly breast related was just not expected.
But doc says that my breasts are so dense there is a high risk of things being missed, or misdiagnosed. That these lumps are on the same side and quadrant as the assymetries has her very concerned.
Trying to stay calm. Already losing my hair due to severe scalp psoriasis and a major surgery last August. Stressing will only make it worse. But not worrying is easier said than done, as I'm sure everyone here has experienced.
Sending big hugs to everyone 🤗🤗🤗❤❤❤ And saying thank you in advance for prayers and support!
