Just that really, in night I was woken up every time I moved, felt like a rock moving inside my boob if I turned over. This morning stood in front of mirror, it looks bigger than other one, and I can squash normal one fine, is soft, left one feels hard inside, hurts just laid down
I had this recently, started with pain and hardness in one breast, then moved to the other. It lasted about a week and I was becoming concerned. Out of the blue I had a horrendous period, long after I thought they had stopped as it had been 18months since the last one. I'm 47. The breast problem disappeared with the period.
imperial nope! For drs protection from allegations. I had to go to a and e and wait in acute urinary retention for catheter as there were only male staff in OOH, my husband was with me but he'd be biased in case of allegations
milly really hope they can sort you out without another trip!!
I got to see a woman doctor eventually, didn't wait too long and she was lovely. Have flucloxacillin for mastitis and feldene gel to relieve he pain, but there is a definate hard mass, feels a couple of inches tbh, so I have to see my own gp Tuesday morning to get referred for an urgent mammogram within 2 weeks.
Have miraculously managed to book an appointment online with the best GP in the practice for 715 Tuesday morning and have emailed work to say I won't be in til I've seen someone as I'm a bit of a state and my head(I teach) has been fabulous, rang me straight back, told me not to come on til I'm sorted and have seen someone and feel ready to.
Post divorce and a load of other hassle, this as last thing I needed.....
All breast referrals are urgent two week hobbies so don't let bit that worry you. Most lumps are benign and pain isn't usually a symptom of anything sinister. There are many threads about breast lumps on here if you do a quick search.
9 out of 10 breast clinic referrals end up being benign conditions. Try not to worry
I had an infected breast a couple of years ago. Very painful. Came on all of a sudden and I felt quite unwell. I was examined and given antibiotics then went back a week later. There was still a hard mass but the pain had gone, so had a mammogram the next day. It was just fluid from the infection and another dose of antibiotics got rid. So you're doing all the right things but please try not to jump ahead.
