Re: Small pea sized lump....

Thanks.

I plan on seeing a doctor, but I have to wait 2 weeks for the appointment with the GP so that I can get a referral to the specialist, which usually takes another week, and then another few weeks before I can get an appointment to the specialist.

In the meantime, I'd really like to know if anyone has any ideas or experiences or reassurances or thoughts of, "nice knowing ya," or whatever so I might have a clue as to what this could be. Does breast cancer usually show up as a tiny little lump IN the skin?

Please, anything will help. I've been feeling like my days are numbered ever since my Dad passed away a few years ago from skin cancer, and now with this new lump, I know I am WAY overdoing it with the "must spend as much time as I can with my kids and husband" mentality! I think I'm driving them crazy, but I can't help it. Everyone I know who has ever had cancer of any kind has died. To me, it's a death sentence (sorry if that offends anyone, and I know that plenty of people have been cured of cancer.... just not anyone I know).

Anyway, still freaking out....
