Re: Welcoming any & all suggestions!

It’s easy to get into just brushing things off and putting work and everything else before your own health and you have taken positive steps to get seen. Remember till anyone tells you otherwise you do not have bc. Everyone on here will 👭as much or as little as you need us. See if you can get biopsy bought forward, it will save a couple of weeks of waiting if you can, but be proud of yourself for taking positive step to get thoroughly checked 👍 💕💕Shi xx

Re: Welcoming any & all suggestions!

Hello Shi,

 

Thank you so much for responding! I will be sure to not delay the biopsy again, my mother was very upset when she found out. She said yes college is important but my health is more important. I will also be sure to utilize any, or all, of the options offered on here. I guess I am just a bit scared honestly. I had issues with the same breast about a year ago but just brushed it off, now it’s worse & the breast is smaller. I will be sure to keep you updated xx

Use the forum, use the someone like me option use the ask the nurse option on here. Again well done for taking action and getting appointment. Please let us know how you get on 💕💕shi xx

Welcoming any & all suggestions!

Hello,

 

This is my first post! First and foremost google is the devil, all I am doing is driving myself insane. I am a 31 year old mother of 2. Long story short my mother is the only one in our family to have been diagnosed with breast cancer (currently in remission). Ok cut to the chase, I have been having a pain in my left breast that goes through to my back, I have a mass in my breast not necessarily a lump. It’s not painful at all and one very weird thing my daughter happened to notice is the breast is significantly smaller than the right breast. I also experienced swelling on the left side on my upper back, collar bone area, and left arm. Also when I called the obgyn she saw me two day’s later and they scheduled the mammogram & ultrasound for the same day. I was sent for mammogram & ultrasound they saw some clogged lymph nodes in my armpit which was why I had the swelling. I was supposed to go for biopsy this coming Monday but rescheduled due to being in college so I go January 31st (no class on fridays). I also noticed my areola is smaller than the other & my nipple is way more sensitive than the other. 

thank you so much for reading & responding!
