Haematoma

The GP said it’s often the husband that finds them.

The hospital appointment’s Friday week.

No, I’m not worried.

It doesn’t run in my family.

Still, should I get a wig or a woolly hat for after the chemo?

I’m really not worried.

But let’s not tell the kids yet.

Bring a book – the letter says it could take four hours.

The consultant said it’s harmless.

He said it’s probably been there all my adult life.

We only spotted it now because breast tissue gets floppier with age.

So, it looks like you’re stuck with me for another twenty years.
