I had a breast lump about a year ago, turned out to be a benign cyst. Lump is back, same place as before and feels the same, same sort of size. Should I get it checked or assume it’s the same thing, by the time I had my appointment at the breast clinic last time it had pretty much gone, the nurse aspirated a tiny amount of fluid and I felt a bit stupid being there. My husband wants me to make an appointment with GP. I know I probably should but not sure.
I would go back. I've had 3 lumps, all benign, but I made sure I had them checked. It's not worth the risk, just in case.
Get EVERY lump checked. Don't ever think you are a time waster. That is how so many women die from cancer because they are afraid to waste someone's time or too embarrassed to get something looked at. Do it. Book an appointment asap.
Malignant lumps don’t come and go though do they?
