Breast clinic appointment

Hi all

I have an appointment just come through for the breast clinic. The date is the 23rd of December!!

I know it's silly but I'm terrified to go as if it's bad news or I need to wait it will ruin the special day with my kids.

I've been having problems with my left breast on and off for a few years. I had part of it ultra sounded about 2 years ago whilst breastfeeding. All was ok.

It's generally bigger than the right and feels noticibly so to me. I don't know if it's just been even bigger since stopping breastfeeding, it's fuller in a bra. I stopped feeding 1.5 years ago tho so. When wearing tops etc it feels tighter on the left. I also have achy in it when pressing against it and for example when I come out of the shower and have a towel wrapped round me. I went to the GP and she said she couldn't feel any concerns and that I have fibrocystic breasts. Which I know I do but this also means there are various lumps throughout! A lot of the lumps are same on both sides but I've also found a couple of little ones recently and I'm terrified.

I just want to cancel the appointment which I know is irrational but I feel sick with fear. My kids at 6 and 2.5 x

Hi Le1890

You're sensible to get it checked out and this isn't a great time of year to be having tests or awaiting results, but in all honesty there isn't really a time which is good for that.

Chances are it will be fine but you're welcome to come and join us on the Tamoxigang thread for some handholding and support whist you're waiting.
