I'll add some more info for you ITBA. I was 37 when I had my cancer. I had already had 6 biopsies before.

My mom is a 25 year survivor. Back then they did the biopsy, check for cancer cells under the microscope ( all while you were under) & then took the appropriate measures. Can you imagine waking up not knowing if you had cancer & if they had to remove your breast?

The waiting is the worst. I hope you caught it early. I'm not one to say it will be fine. I hated it when people would say "oh, just don't worry about it". Worrying is natural & crying is also allowed!  ;) (angel)

Just got back from meeting my doctor who is wonderful, she is a surgical oncologist who does research at University of Louisville.  She asked if I wanted her to biopsy today and my answer was a resounding yes.  So she did, that was mildly unpleasant but definitely not as bad as I imagined.  The good thing about it to me was that there is no blood supply going to the mass and the pieces that she brought out were white fiber type of tissue, not red and angry.  What I didn't like is that it is so deep she hit bone when she pressed the trigger on the biopsy gun.  I don't know if that makes any difference at all but I know when my mother in law had a mastectomy a month ago (don't think we aren't tired of the words breast cancer) it was all the way out in the ducts and the doctor said that was the best place to have it.  So I am running with my own thoughts that back against the chest wall is probably not good. 

Regardless, as the doctor said, the only two people who know are God and the pathologist so we will let the pathologist have a go at it.  I go back a week from today and find out what the results are.
