Hi everyone - My mum (92) has just had a couple of breast lumps checked out at the hospital. The consultant there said he could give her some tablets (wish I'd asked the name of these now) to help shrink the lumps, but a biopsy may produce a more accurate diagnosis, and therefore possibly more treatment options. However he did say a biopsy may not be possible as she is so thin - the needle may go too near a lung - they wouldn't know until they try. Anyway now she has too decide whether to go ahead with the biopsy or not, given that she would probably not opt for any invasive surgery or anything anyway, given her age and frailty. She asked my advice but I'm not telling her what to do - just trying to go over the options with her. I wondered what experiences anyone on here might have had with breast biopsy, as I've had no experience of it myself.
I'm sick to death of it - anyone else?
What on earth do I do? - too close to Christmas
I don't understand this trend - AIBU?
