is that I am 43 and just got my first mammogram. No excuses other than my dad passing of non Hodgkins lymphoma several years ago have locked my psyche in a certainty that I too, will die of cancer. It makes no sense, and it is horrible and I feel like a horrible person right now.
Last Saturday, I felt a mild discomfort on my right breast. I can't feel any lumps or bumps. Breasts look same size, nipples look the same. I was called this evening though because there is a "spot" on my mammo. I have to return tomorrow for ultrasound and another mammogram. The worst part, they will send me away without knowing any answers until next week. I don't know why, that is just how this place operates in my lovely town.
I've read online that a metastatic tumor would cause pain. What am I in for?
Feeling sad and lonely, Christy
