I didn’t expect to find anything! I was so relieved when I saw my family doctor because she didn’t think it was anything to worry about. She did send me for an ultrasound just to be sure. The radiologist thought it was probably benign and I was told to go back for a follow-up scan in six months. I went back to my family doctor in four months because the lump had continued to grow. She sent me for another ultrasound which also indicated that the lesion was likely benign.
I was told yet again to return in another six months for a follow-up scan. I went back to my family doctor for the third time, three months later. This time I was referred to a breast clinic where they did an ultrasound, mammogram, and biopsy. The lump was 0.7cm when I first found it, now seven months later it was 2.7cm.
