I’m 28 and since December found what I thought was a lump in my left breast went to docs who thought it was a cyst sent me to breast clinic and told was thickening of the breast tissue have to go back in 3 weeks and if not gone then have scan and biopsy the problem is I’ve developed severe pain around the thickening going into my nipple the Pains so bad at times it brings me to tears it’s also got me more worried and advice on how to deal with the pain very welcome

Hi thanks for reply I’ve been back to gp who can me stronger painrelief and went in to the clinic as work at the hospital but was told to just wait for my appointment… Just getting me more nervous as when first noticed it in December it was only an achy feeling but now the pains spread and a lot worse than what it was just can’t get comfy as it’s in waves not a constant pain when it comes ive tried wearing sports bra and going bra less but feels like my nipple is on fire x
