found a breast lump Watch
ive tried to put this at the back of my mind but it’s really caught up with me now. So a few weeks ago I found a lump on my right breast, sort of on the inner corner underboob area. I always check my breast because I have a strong family history of breast cancer with my mum being diagnosed last year at under 50.
I have gone to the docs and he didn’t examine me he took my word for it and sent an urgent referral.
i know all I can do is wait and go to my appointment at the breast clinic but I’m terrified. Does anyone’s have any experience of this?
is it painful? i think its the hard and painful ones that might be a worry. but many times it just turns out to be a cyst or fatty lump. get it checked out
Anyways, most breast lumps turn out to be nothing worrying. OP, you going to be seen by a specialist really soon and they will do all the tests to find out what's going on. And to reassure you - most GPs will refer any woman with a breast lump, so the fact they didn't examine you doesn't mean anything, they were probably just trying to save time.
