Re: Possible Fibroadenoma?
I had a mammogram and ultrasound in February and the US revealed a lump in my right breast. My doctor said to monitor it and to have another US in six months. I had the second ultrasound on Sept 28. Apparently there are two lumps (that was also in the first US) and they have grown a bit since February. So, now I have an appointment with the surgeon tomorrow because my GP said they needed to be removed. The radiologist report suggests fibroadenoma or other benign lump. At the same time, this is the same radiologist who kept putting the word osteomyelitis (bone infection) in my post surgical foot x-rays. (there was no bone infection)
Right now I am not particularly concerned. Perhaps dissociation is working for me. Also, this time last year I sweating and worrying about foot surgery that I had on October 28, 2009 and all the worry was unecessary. My foot has healed well, and the surgery really was not a big deal in the grand scheme of things.
I will wait and see what the surgeon says tomorrow. I was able to get this appointment quickly, so I anticipate the surgery will be fairly soon. My mother had breast cancer that started with a lump, so I imagine that will bump me up the list. She was 60 when she had her lump. I am 53. She took hormone replacement for many years. I have not.
Life is too short to wear tight shoes. ~ May you have happy feet in 2013.
