my mum found a lump many many years ago... her doc told her it was a bpocked milk duct and this went on for years.. by the time she got a new doc her nipple had inverted and was weeping heavily.. the cancer by this point was pretty well spread...
BUT - she didn;t die. 12 years on she is totally cancer free and healthy as hell.. she had a mastectomy, a radical one, and lymph nodes removed.. and has recently had her breast rebuilt.. well, she now has wonderful pert boobs that looks fantastic and she looks soo good in a swimming costume now!!
You've caught your lump early hun.. I just know everything will be OK.
But I do understand how awful thse few weeks must be for you. I really do.. when I failed a smear I had a 6 week wait for a colposcopy and biopsy, and then another 8 week wait for treatment and the wait was just hideous.
Wish there was more I could do for you right now
