Three weeks ago I found a lump in my right breast and attended my GP who referred me to the Breast clinic. I was there today, I'm a nurse which I think probably has made me more anxious these last few weeks as a little knowledge can be a bad thing and make you worry more.
From the minute I entered the hospital and went for my mammogram I was treated with kindness and compassion.
The service was seamless and I went from mammogram to consultation with a consultant ( very matter of fact and bedside manner was a bit abrupt ) I then had an ultrasound of my right breast by a radiologist which was then reviewed by a consultant before a fine needle aspirate was taken from my lump for analysis.
Thankfully I am one of the lucky ones and my lump isn't anything sinister but will be removed anyway just in case.
All this was done in 3 hours, what an excellent service. Thank you to all the staff who were busy but not too busy to treat me like a human being and not just another one of many people they will have seen today.
