I’m Karen and i’m 44 going on 24. I live in Telford…I’ve got two children A boy and a girl.I have just recently just got divorced.I am a very, happy, bubbly person. That’s my first introduction…lol.so a big HELLO to anyone who reads this.
I recently posted a comment on here a few days ago. I found a lump in my right breast but there doesn’t seem to be any pain or much movement with mine. I keep thinking i can feel more than one lump. not sure whether that’s all in my head. However i have found my breasts seem to be changing. After i have had my period about 4 days after that they seem to swell up like im pregnant but they don’t hurt and my periods are getting closer together…all so very strange. I put it down to my age.I know this maybe nothing to do with my lump but i have read that hormonal changes can be related to breast lumps.
I am still waiting for a appointment to come through, so this waiting game is driving me crazy.I am feeling my boobs 24/7.
Anyway, i have been reading so many posts one here and people are saying that some doctors have said that if a lump is painful it’s less likely to be cancerous, so of course i am thinking the worst. It can’t be benign because having read stuff about benign breast lumps it does say that most of them are mobile and are painful to touch. I almost wish mine was painful because then it is less likely to be cancerous…does that make any sense?..
I know it’s very silly trying to diagnose myself but i think it’s what we do.I guess i need to stop over thinking and just try and get on with my life and wait until my appointment and leave it to the experts…
Hope i haven’t sounded a bit kind of selfish. I guess there are many, many women worse off than myself and here i am harping on but i just need to talk to someone. My friends are lovely and they all mean well but somehow because they are not in the same boat, they don’t seem understand…
Would very much like to hear from someone who is thinking the same as me.
Many thanks to people who have read my post and havent fallen asleep reading it… lol…xx
