I attended the breast assessment clinic on 31 March 2016 after a routine mammogram.
Needless to say I was terrified.
I am also profoundly deaf, but, was advised I couldn't take my husband in with me for the procedures.
I needn't have worried, everyone was fantastic with me.
The radiologist was brilliant.
They went way and above their role as a radiologist, to put me at ease, and made sure I understood exactly what was happening every step of the way.
The GP who did the ultrasound, and the nurse with them, also tried their best to put me at ease, and to communicate with me.
I was one of the lucky ones, and was diagnosed with a cyst.
I was so impressed with their treatment of myself I've asked to return there for my routine 3 year mammogram.
