I’m here this morning sharing my feelings because I don’t want to worry anyone in my daily life. Two weeks ago, I went for a mammogram and the results came back that I have very dense breasts, but they are concerned with three areas in one breast. I have a follow up 2pm today for add’l mammograms and a breast ultrasound (to which I will get my results same day)
2 yrs ago I had my 1st ultrasound and they also recommended a 2nd ultrasound, this is where I found out I had two cysts (which were ok) and very dense tissue. I didn’t go last year – don’t know why actually…
Secretly I’ve been stressing about today’s results. Both my gram & aunt died of cancer (but not breast cancer) – I am a smoker and I HATE that I am. I have searched WebMD(i know, i know), blew up google searches, hell I even looked at my discs they gave me to try & see what they are talking about. ARGH! I want to scream, but I can’t. I keep repeating to myself that it will all be ok. I’m a worrier by nature.
I’m not looking for sympathy, I just wanted to get my thoughts out of my head and somewhere where I can read it later. I just dont want Fiance or my mom to know how worried I really am – then they will worry and I don’t want them worried. I trust the Bees to keep this secret.

Please stay off Google! As a breast cancer survivor, I know how scary this is and that you want answers NOW, but google is going to make everything seem worse than it could be. It is very, very possible that it’s a cyst or something else benign. It’s great that your doctors are taking a closer look to make sure. And if it turns out to be the worst case scenario…well, there are bunch of bees like me who have been through this and will support you!

I second staying off google. When my mom was going through a medical issue scare (she was fine) the first thing her doctor told her was to stay off google! She dindn’t listen of course, and I remember finding her crying in front of the computer. It definitely does more harm than good! I know how scary it can be going through something like this. I’m a worrier too, so my mind keeps thinking awful things. Just try to stay calm (easier said than done!) and it sounds like your doctors are really looking into things, which is good! Sending lots of positive thoughts your way!
