My dd's 2.5 and I stopped feeding her when she was 18 months old. I've developed a hard lump behind my right nipple which is about the size of a grape I guess although a bit flatter. It's quite painful to touch and I'm glad to get my bra off by the end of the night. I went to see the practice nurse at the GP surgery last week and she's asked for an appointment for me at the breast clinic, she seemed quite worried and said she'd put it down as an emergency. I've been trying not to panic about it but today I've been feeling quite worried and low about it. I think I thought that cancerous lumps wouldn't be painful but someone I work with told me otherwise.
Does anyone have any knowledge of or experience of this kind of lump? Could it be any kind of blocked duct so long after b/f?
