Hi, I can't get my nurse in the phone I was diagnosed weds with triple negative bc, 4cm lump awaiting biopsy to see if it has gone to lymphnode which is at 3.7. Now i noticed a small ball like lump above my collar bone. I'm so worried. My surgeon assured me while I wait for my scan on the 2nd of Jan it won't spread that quick

Hi just spoke to my nurse she said as nothing presented under my arm or any other nodes it's possible it's a result of me having the flu and sore throat before I got my biopsy. I had been sick with flu for a week or two.
