Thank you so much for the reply!! I’m so sorry your story turned out like that. I see a lot of things sing pain isn’t much of a sign, but women I’ve talked to pain as been a sign. I’m praying it’s nothing but I also don’t know bc it’s def changed in my breast and that’s not normal especially not just one breast.
thought and prayers for you and thank you I at least don’t feel so crazy now
I am new here as well. It is interesting that this is the first subject I see when I found this forum online, as I too, twelve years ago now, started my breast cancer nightmare with pain in my nipple. None of the doctors that I saw at the time had ever heard of such a thing, so I did not get proper treatment. It turns out, that the lump they found was growing on a nerve. Starting with the biopsy that struck the nerve, and proceeding on to lumpectomy surgery, radiation, and Tamoxifen for as long as could stand it. The nipple pain eventually subsided years later, but the surgery itself, coupled with too much radiation, has left me with intense nerve damage, and I am in constant pain in my entire breast (at surgical scar and all around). I don't mean to scare you, mine is a rare worst case, but if I had known at the time it was nerve pain, I might have done things very differently.
I hope this helps a little bit, and I wish you the best of luck!
Yes baths help me also!! I haven’t mentioned anything to my children either. That’s us mommas no need to worry them until there is reason! I need a good cry but not sure I’ll stop if I start. And it’s easy for people to say pull yourself together when it’s not them. Yes reading on here and having somewhere just to let it out has truly been a help for me. Message me anytime also.
Hi I will keep you updated, and you likewise. I have a teen Son. You will worry until it's sorted. I know I am. It comes in waves. I had a good cry, that helped. Friends ( not on here btw) say pull " myself together" etc. Easier said than done. You are young with a family, no wonder it's a strain. No matter what you will get support from this site. I'm on most days, as I find it reassuring. I'm seen this Thursday so not to long to go!, but as you know that feels ages. I've been taking extra baths as it cheers me up, junk tv, all distractions. Today was worse as my teen Son at his dad's. Like me you are prob more worried for your kids. I am determined that nothing ruins my son A levels he's doing at moment. He dosent know anything yet as I'm prob gonna be fine. Sending you a virtual hug and cuppa tea. Chat anytime you need. X
The waiting is hard. I hope all your test come back great. I would have thought hormones to but I don’t have a period anymore due to surgery for uncontrolled bleeding. I’m 33 today and have 3 small kids and 2 step kids and that’s my worry for them. Thank you for your reply and keep me updated on you!! Glad I’m not alone
Hi amandawright2829. Feeling anxious and worried over unexplained breast pain/ changes is totally understandable. Glad you got a referral. The clinics are very thorough. The waiting and not knowing, and in your case pain is very distressing. Hopefully you'll be seen soon and feel better. I did have pain in both sides many years ago, it was just hormones, and just went away. This time I'm just waiting on results from a routine visit. Take care.
Hi I’m new here! Two weeks ago I started getting a burning pain in my left breast at the nipple. It’s not always constant bad but there. I can’t even carry my son on that side bc the pain and burning goes up into my arm pit so bad I get tears. Also a very small almost pinky nail size dark spot on my skin appeared and my breast just feels different. Went to GP she did an exam and said my breast are lumpy and dense natural so hard for her to know difference. But said since all this is new and I know my breast and think they are different she referred me to the breast clinic for a mammogram and ultrasound especially since I took a very high dose and estrogen birth control recently for a year to help with bleeding that concerned her. I’m trying not to worry but it’s consumed me. Has anyone else had anything similar?
