Mammogram


I found a lump in my left breast.

I have been freaking out about it since I found it a month and a half ago. My appointment was finally today.

Do I feel better? Not really. I still don't have any answers and I have a breast ultrasound scheduled for August the 8th.

Is it serious? Probably not, everyone keeps telling me that it's probably just a cyst.

Am I scared? Hell yes. No matter what people are saying (I know they are trying to make me feel better) I will still be concerned until I know for sure.

Why is it that I am trying to better myself, and I keep finding things wrong with me?
First it was my chest and it turned out to be a hiatal hernia on my esophagus, now it's my boob.

What's next?

I hope to God nothing. This weight loss thing is hard enough, and it's the only thing I want to be focusing on right now.

The good thing about this post is a message.....

CHECK YOUR BOOBS LADIES!!!!!

You never know what you may find, and it's better to be safe than sorry. Early detection is the best defence against anything......

So here's to staying positive, and optimistic that it's just a cyst and nothing more......

  2. my scariest make me pee my pants fear. My mom had breast cancer. She had a boob cut off her body. It is more likely my sister and/or I could end up with it too. Me no likey. I have to get a mammogram this year because we have to start getting them 10 years before my mom had cancer. Not looking forward to the boob squish.

    Good luck though we are all here with our fingers crossed and our thoughts with you.

  5. Of course you're going to worry no matter what anyone says - but it's just that we WANT you to be okay so we say that it'll be okay cuz we WANT you to be okay. Does that make sense? Anyway - take care - keep us posted and I'll say prayers for you!

  6. Crossing fingers for you, Bon. For myself, I try to feel my boobies every once in a while, but I've never had a mammogram. Ugh. The very thought...

  7. Thinking of you ♥ hope you get some good news soon. Breast cancer runs in my family, so I've been reminded to check myself since I got breasts in the first place.

  8. My mother recently got a mammogram done -- she also felt a lump, and it turned out alright. I'm hoping the same goes for you. Will send you a bag of luck and good wishes. And yes, everyone who's hit the age of 16 or older and realizes that "Hey, I've got boobs" should probably feel themselves once a month. I've been doing it since I can remember. A little awkward, but you get over that. I'm glad you're being as positive as you are and proactive as well! Kudos and best wishes to you!
