Hi all,
I'm currently 36 weeks pregnant with DD number 2 and earlier this week felt a lump in my breast. I went to the GP who said it may be pregnancy related but would refer me for a check in 4-6 weeks!
I've been so worried DH and I went to be checked at a private clinic yesterday where an unknown area showed up on ultrasound and they have taken a biopsy. We have an appointment in a week for the results, but I'm so worried and just thinking the worst! Has anyone had any similar experiences?

I am really sorry you're going through all this stress. flowers

I don't have any experience of this situation but I do know that the vast majority of breast lumps turn out to be nothing and that breasts during breastfeeding, which your body will be preparing for, are much denser and difficult to ultrasound effectively than otherwise. Chances are this is absolutely nothing. I can't imagine it will be an easy week but i am wishing the best for you.

Thank you for the best wishes. smile
I am hoping this is the case and it's just the pregnancy changing things but can't help but keeping thinking the worst.

💐 for you.
I went through a similar thing (although not pg) at Easter and the waiting was awful. I did lots of reading and research during that time and found breast lumps a common problem with insignificant outcomes for the majority of cases. Here's hoping the same for you.

Poor you! I went through this when not pg, had a biopsy, and results the same day said it was benign, but they checked it a few months later and found it had grown, so removed it anyway, and checked it, and it was totally benign. DD also had one removed when she was a teenager.
Being pg, tho, it's really more likely that your breasts are simply gearing up to produce milk, and second time round have got a bit previous with it, and got a bit of a blockage. Do go straight back to GP if it gets red and sore, tho.

Sorry to hijack but how does a private app work? I have been seen onNHS but seriously not reassured by their actions do would like a second, private opinion.

Thank you all for your messages. I have also found myself looking up about it and researching. I am just trying to keep myself occupied with DD1 until the results.

For the private appointment I phoned a private hospital near by who gave me the prices and app etc. Just had to pay on arrival.

Thank you again for all your messages. Just an update; the results came back all clear smile There is a mass there but it is not cancerous. The consultant said they don't think there is any need to remove it at this time and it may improve on its own after the birth/BF etc. So just have to go back for another scan in about 6 weeks time to check it's not getting bigger or anything smile

Phew! So relieved for you, OP. Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy flowers
