I am so sorry you are scared. I understand your fear. I was diagnosed with stage 1 invasive ductile breast Cancer on 8/7/2018. I hope by now you have gotten the answers you need and are feeling a little better about your diagnoses. The fear never truly goes away, but with time you will get to know your body and it will be less scary I am currently in the middle of my 4 week radiation therapy. It is different for everyone, but if you need an ear to listen, I am here. ((((hugs))))

Hi Lindal,

I am sorry to hear of your breast cancer diagnosis. A person can experience a range of emotions when they have had a cancer diagnosis. There are many reactions to this, pain, shock, anger, fear, loss of control, resentment, withdrawal and sadness. May I recommend you contact us on the Nurseline Freephone number 1800 200 700, it may be better to talk to a nurse about the fear and uncertainty you have.

I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer in Sept also . It's a lot of waiting for results . I had lump and a few lymph nodes removed. Theŕe was cancer in 1 lymph node so then had bone scan and CT scan, two weeks ago had lymph node clearance surgery which floored me for a week . Still waiting for results yo know what treatment I will need . It's hard as you want to know but it's a process and you can only take one day at a time. Best of luck with it all x
