Hi claireabella, The mind certainly can go into overdrive with waiting & the anxiety, hyper awareness & tension that goes with it, will also give you the symptoms you describe. The GP is most likely right about this, it’s far more likely to be a cyst than bc especially as you have a history of this. The important thing is you’re getting it checked out, so there’s nothing more you can do now. Chances are all’s well, it usually is. ann x
Hi I've been here before a few times with worries of lumps found which have turned out to be cysts and fibroadenoma. I had the mirena coil fitted in September of last year to help with endo issues and since then have had heavy painful breasts. I check myself regularly and on Christmas just gone as I was getting into the shower brushed some clothes fluff from my right breast. As I did so I felt a large lump close to the skin above my nipple. It was unmistakable but de finitley not there the week before when I carried out my breast exam. Got GP apt immediately, they were so good. GP. Is Convinced it is a cyst as it's moves and is soft but my worry was how large it was. I put it behind me over Christmas. My breast clinic appt is tomorrow and I cannot sleep. I feel that the pain in my breasts is increasing and I have constant muscle, back and neck pain. I have convinced myself it's mastiesised. Anyone out there with some words to get me grounded again and to make me see sense.
