I normally have a feel in the shower but this morning I was awake early and just touched my right boob on the underside. I was lying on my left side so my breast was in a different place I suppose.
I felt quite a large (2" maybe) lumpy mass there. I'm 51, hysterectomy 3 years ago and have been on HRT for 2 years. As a teenager/20's i had quite lumpy breasts and I've always suffered with breast pain with my menstrual cycle. I had a mammogram 2 years ago too, called as my area was running trials on women under 50 - all was normal.
I have no other symptoms, weight is fairly stable and breast isn't misshapen or anything.
I should get it checked shouldn't I ? Even though it's probably nothing.
Yes, it's always better to safe than sorry.
All breast lumps need checking. 9/10 are benign. Urgent appointment on Monday will see you in the breast clinic within 2 weeks. Like you say, it's probably nothing it really is likely to be non- serious but you'll worry if you don't get it confirmed.
Op, please don't leave it. I'm 50 and currently being treated for breast cancer. I had a clear mammo just over a year ago under trial too. My lump was thought to be a cyst but it wasn't. I have been amazingly fortunate with fast surgery and now undergoing active treatment. Please don't ignore it. It's very likely nothing to worry about but don't take that chance. Good luck!
