I knew it was there because my right breast is slightly larger than the left. Though, it's normal for women to have one breast larger than the other, it's NOT normal for me. I touch my breast all the time (self breast exam), I look at em, I like em a lot : ) So I know when there is something 'off' about them. My boyfriend noticed that one was larger than the other one day. He said that he thought it was strange (he knows my breast well too). I downplayed it. I didnt go to the doctor til 4 months later. My shirts and bras dont even fit right on me anymore (they are lop-sided)!!!
My doctor did a clinical breast exam (Nov 1st), felt something significant, sent me for a screening mammogram. The mammogram technician noticed, by touching my right breast, how heavy it is (and it is). After having the oncologist and radiologist looked at the results of my screening exam, I now have an appointment for a diagnostic mammogram and a breast ultrasound for both breasts on Nov 29,2007. Happy Holidays to me, huh?
I'm not scared about what may be found. I actually feel relieved that I am getting help. However, this turns out, I know that I will be ok. I wish this could all move along faster.
