Waiting is the hardest part

Breast cancer at 40 is kinda rare, or so I’m told. As if turning 40 wasn’t hard enough, I had gotten used to being the oldest person around the past few years at appointments during my “geriatric pregnancies” (the legit medical term for pregnant women over 35). So, fast forward to the past 2 months and hearing how young I am was somewhat comical. All the nurses and imaging technicians have told me not to worry, because I’m “only 40” and “so young”. There’s no way the hard mass I found in my left ta-ta is cancerous. It has to be benign. Right?
