I’m so sorry, owals. I just went through this last week. I am 45 with two children, and was terrified. I was BIRADS 4a. I just got my biopsy results this morning and it was a benign fibroadenoma. I won’t tell you not to worry or not to be afraid, because it is scary. But I will tell you that you will get through it. Do what you need to do and feel what you need to feel to cope. I had a different, unrelated type of cancer 15 years ago (completely cured and never had a problem since), and so can say with confidence that waiting and the unknown are typically the worst parts of the journey. I can also say that the community here is wonderful, and you are not alone.

Hi owals,

I’m so sorry that you have found yourself here at 36 with three small babies. There would be no words could ease your fear and anxiety. With 4b, there is still good chance that it could be benign fibroadenoma; hang on to that hope. “But if it turns out as the other way, you will have the strength to deal with it understanding that most BC is treatable, manageable and many go on with life just fine” (this is what my doctor told me the day she sent me for my diagnosis mammogram and the day she delivered the news of my biopsy. I found it is hard to believe back then, but with this forum, I have learned that her saying is quite true). This time is the hardest. Wish you the very good result
