Hi moms! I'm waiting on an appointment with my doctor but wanted to ask a question.
I have breast lumps in both breasts that I recently discovered. Sometimes painful and most of the time not.
But when I lay on my side and feel the side of my breast I feel it's bumpy and very firm. I feel dumb asking but can that just be my ribs? I'm small chested and have a small frame. Don't want to waste my doctors time lol
I feel it when I'm laying flat on my back but its harder to find.
And I noticed change in how they look i can't tell if its dimpling or stretch marks
You are doing the right thing by seeing your doctor. Hope you have a positive outcome
It's never a waste of time. If you have any doubts at all - get checked over. Even if there's nothing there, it'll put your mind at rest and help you get a sense of what's normal for you. Then in the future if anything different appears you'll be more likely to spot it and act quickly.
