Hey i am 31 years old and about 8 wks ago i went to my doctors as i found a lump in my left breast, the doctor told me to give it a few wk to see if it would go. after about 3 wks i goes back to the doctors and he did the same to me. so about a wk and half ago i asked to see a different doctor, this time she examined me again, she as referred me to the breast clinic,

Can anyone help me understand since about 6 wks ago under my left armpit hurts bad Upto my left shoulder hurts and near my neck, the pain is constant and feels deep. i sit and cry most off the time wishing it would go away, i work full time and struggling to consternate. i feel a wreck and all my family keep saying is its nothing, but what if it isn’t i am scared like nearly everyone in this waiting game, just need to no if anyone else as had this kind off pain before. thank you for reading

Hi I’m new here to and also 31. Sorry can’t help much with any advice as I’m still just waiting for my appointment. I hope you get your referral back quick and it’s all ok at the appointment x

Wishing you both the best of luck for your appointments, i totally honest i hate this waiting game, and i am scared stupid not knowing what to expect. i found myself on edge i try to take my mind off things as i work full time but whenever i am not busy its there again. my family members keep telling me not to worry which yeah i can understand, but how can ou not worry?? thinking of you both for next wk
