Hi Misty24,

Thank you for your post. I am sorry to read that you found a lump in your breast.

Every referral to the symptomatic breast clinic is triaged and your waiting time for an appointment will depend on this. You could call St James' and ask them approximately when your appointment will be.

If you would like to speak with one of our cancer nurses in more detail about this please call the Support Line on 1800 200 700, Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm.

Kind regards,

Cancer Nurse
