Lump in breast(6 Posts)
Hi I’m 29, found a lump in my breast a month ago. Didn’t go to the doctors for two weeks. Got an urgent referral appointment which is tomorrow. Haven’t thought much of it but I’m getting night before nerves and torturing myself googling!
My aunt has BC at 33, my cousin at 29.
When I went to the doctors she asked some questions. Looked at the sore, angry mole in my armpit (not relevant I know 😂) and said it’s benign then felt my breast. She then referred me to the breast clinic. At the time I didn’t think anything of it, she didn’t say what she thought and didn’t even confirm that she could feel the lump, just that she was referring me. I know I should have asked at the time but didn’t (idiot) and now I’m overthinking. I really have no idea what to expect tomorrow and I’m worried that I’m going to go in and waste the doctors time, time that could have been given to someone needing it more. Sometimes I can feel the lump and sometimes I can’t so I keep wondering if I imagined it or am just overthinking ?
Sorry for the novel, I’m panicky and my anxiety is sky high
Hi Corn, how did your appointment go? If you need support, post in general health as that gets more traffic. I just came across your post now, so fingers crossed for you x
Hi@Cornholio78, how did you get on? X
I have a breast appointment tomorrow. I am so nervous! I was fine before but then my mind started going and now I am so worried! I have found a small hard lump, about pea size, just to the right of my nipple which I know wasn’t there a few months ago.
Hi, sorry it’s kinda been hard to post. It was diagnosed as breast cancer last year and I have been having treatment which seems to be working.
Missdemix please try and not worry, I know it’s Incredibly difficult But it’s very unlikely to be something serious, there’s so many other things it could potentially be. Good luck for tomorrow and please let us know x
Hi @Cornholio78. I am so sorry you were diagnosed with BC. But am pleased you are having treatment and hopefully on the mend to a healthier you 😘!
I know, I am of similar age to you (28) and am just sick with worry. Will let you know how I get on. And thanks so much for replying! X
Hi all, just thought I would let you know how I got on... especially if others come in here with the same worries as I did. Thankfully the consultant found the lump and an ultrasound was done, where they said it was a benign cyst. I feel so relived and happy!
@Cornholio78 I wish you all the best with your ongoing treatment and hope you are back to full health soon! X
