27 and had appointment at breast clinic today - al the did was a breast exam...


I’m 27 and I had an appointment with the GP who reffered me to the Breast Clinic.

I just had the appointment at the breast clinic… All they did was a breast examination…I got told it was normal which is great but I am still worried. Why did the GP refer me if it was just normal, seems a waste of time.

Something just doesn’t feel right and I was expecting them to atleast do an ultrasound.

My nipple has started to hurt too…a kind of shooting pain. I didnt mention this though and now feel i should’ve!

I don’t know I guess maybe I worked myself up before it or something. Is it normal for them not to do any other tests?
