Last month, I went for a pap smear and at the same time, get my doctor to do an over-all check-up.
The last time I did my pap smear?? After Jamie was born so it was about 2 years ago. I know, I should have done it yearly so this was overdue.
And before this check-up, I had felt some pain in my left breast so I told the doctor. I knew I should not be worried too much about it as I have lumpy breasts. However, lump is still a lump and now it suddenly triggered discomfort, I should not be taking it too lightly. Many years ago, I went for biopsy and removed 2 lumps in my breasts. Thankfully they were benign so were not cancerous lumps.
To cut my boobs story short, the doctor referred me to hospital for ultra-scan. I dread mammogram so I did not mind ultra-scan at all. Anyway, mammogram is for women aged 40 and above so I am still not eligible for that.
More than a week ago, I did the ultra-scan and consulted the specialist (who happened to be the one who consulted and operated on me last time). As expected, found few small lumps, and the specialist did not suspect anything unusual. However I need to monitor and come back for follow-up in 6 months time.
The results were all came back good. Now I can put it at the back of my mind and breathe a sigh of relief. And quickly send a prayer of gratefulness to the heavenly Father for blessing me with good health.
