When do you hear more about this? Whatever the results you will manage and you will be fine. :-*

Thank you.
I'm not sure when I'll get the results. They said it should be this week, but I suppose it depends on how busy they are.

Thanks Birdy. I have to be fair to the doctor as at least they are taking seriously, and if it does turn out to be cancer I would be really upset if they hadn't done the biopsy, etc. I got a new dentist not that long ago, and went to see her for the first time (as oppose to the hygienist) when it first started to hurt. She was really horrible to me and barely looked at the lump before giving me some antibiotics that made me really ill, so that's why I went to the doctor. The dentist didn't check the rest of my mouth or anything.

Change your dentist?  Dentists and hygeniest are trained to look for oral conditions that need treatments.  A dentist without empathy is in the wrong job?

How have you been today?

Oh I am definitely planning to change the dentist. My previous dentist moved away, and this was the first time I actually met the new one. I couldn't believe how rude and off-hand she was. She literally had me open my mouth, looked at the lump and said she'd give me antibiotics. When I said I couldn't have penicillan she snapped something and stormed off, then returned and almost threw the prescription at me! To say I was shocked was an understatement.

? menopausal ? - if not, her turn will arrive  ;)

U could of course make an appt to see why she was so offhand?  Can't blame C-19 on every situation, surely?

She said that she can tell the women on HRT by their mouth.
I'm intrigued. What does she see?

Unlikely. I'd guess she was 30s. Thinking back, and I hate to be horrible, but quite honestly she looked like she needed a good wash! I'm sure I was her first customer of the day, and her tunic was marked and dirty, and her hair needed brushing. I'd seen her around when I went to see my original dentist and she always looked scruffy.

Not a good look when everyone is supposedly C-19 aware.

Who did U speak with?  I suspect if there was any worry they would have been in touch sooner, results that need immediate attention are flagged usually with a red sticker and sent directly to the dept required. 

Ring again tomorrow afternoon.  Let us know  :bighug:

That's awful.  Not much sleep expected then.  Do you know who you will be talking to?
