Hello everyone,

My Mom just had her Biopsy test and is about to find out the result this Saturday.

She is extremely worried, and don't know how to react. I feel she is about to collapse.

My Dad and I are about the same, sleepless nights since the day the lump was identified.

Can someone help me determine if the conditions below is enough to confirm it is breast cancer.

The doctor scared my Mom by saying her lump looks more like cancer than other things.

1. Painless
2. She checks every year, and it appeared this year. The size is less than 1cm (or 0.4 inch)
3. The surface is not smooth
4. The lump is very deep, almost next to the muscle

I am also really worried. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

If by any chance, it is cancer, what is her survival rate? Is there any chance of cure?

I see online with 5 year, 10 year survival, is that all she will have left if it is confirmed?

Thank you very much.

The fact that the lump is so small and was found early does help in the treatment etc.

The doctor will help your Mom decide on the best treatment for her.

Good luck and let us know what happens.

My mass is really small and I am so thankful. It will be a week before I hear anything. No matter the outcome, the mass is small and I will ok.
