Hi tt74, Welcome to the forum.
You are not wasting yours or anyone else’ time. If you get this checked out and all is well, that will be great news and a weight off your mind. On the other hand if you dont go, it will niggle away at you and always be on your mind.
If it is BC, it is better that it is diagnosed sooner rather than later, as early intervention has better results.
Wishing you all the best, please let us know how you get on xxx

hi tt74,
as nannabarb says above, just go to the appointment, the fact that you have logged onto the forum means you are thinking about what it could be, dont scare yourself. they are efficient fast and you will know straightaway. dont read too much , we all have lots of funny lumps and you are doing the right thing, just keep sharing your thoughts, when you need to. there is a great bunch of ladies here, they are so supportive.
good luck

PLEASE GO TO THE APPOINTMENT…you need to get this checked out and as the other ladies have said…eary intervention has the best results…that is what the NHS is there for…best wishes…hoping it’s nothing

I echo what the others have said. Go and get it checked out…most breast lumps are nothing to worry about. You are NOT wasting their time. All lumps need to be checked.
Best wishes…I hope you get a good result.

thankyou everyone for your advice i think i will go to the appointment because if im honest i am worried and havent stopped checking

If you’re worried you need to have your mind set at rest, and the appointment is the only way.
Good luck!

thankyou does anyone no if u do hav bc does your nipple stay inverted or does it go in and come out i have also noticed my armpit is swollen and im having pain in my collerbone area

hi tt74, not sure about the nipple as mine is ok but found lump in breast and under arm, mine turned out to be invasive ductal breast cancer with node between lungs affected as well. so do go to your appointment may turn to be nothing but you need to get it checked, asap.
big hugs xx

thankyou suzee its helped being able to talk to people who no whatyour going through i feel a lot better

no probs you’ll feel better when you know for sure, and what your treatment plan will be, just let us know how you get whether its good or bad news
big hugs xx

i will keep use informed use r all fantastic on this site so supportive thankyou

tt74, the symptoms you have described - including the inverted nipple - can all be signs of breast cancer. You need to get this checked out as soon as possible. If it is nothing, or benign, the check will give you peace of mind. If it is cancer, the sooner you get treatment the better. I know it is scary, but you really are doing the right thing getting it checked.

Good luck with it all
