Thank you so much to everyone for the emails and facebook comments after I blogged last week about finding a lump in my breast.
Just a quick update…
I had an ultra sound last week and finally (finally!) got the results today, which are of course inconclusive. I have an “indeterminate” nodule…meaning they don’t know what it is. The advice is to wait for three months, and if it is still there, have a biopsy.
I’m not sure if I like that advice very much. That means carrying around this little pea that is most noticeable. To me anyway. I know it’s there. You can’t see it, but it can most easily be felt. I find myself unconsciously touching it throughout the day (not in a Divinyls way, of course – remember that song?)
So I’m deciding what to do next. Perhaps see a breast surgeon and get a second opinion. Or just live with my little pea for 3 months and wait it out. Either way, my little pea will be there for a while longer and I’ll get to know it a little better.
And I’ll keep on running. Me and my little pea.
My gut tells me everything is fine. But I wouldn’t mind being pea-less sooner rather than later.
