Re: 23 years old, referral to breast clinic.

Hi there, good news they didnt find anything suspicious at the clinic, nurses were fantastic. She did notice the asymmetric and felt the thickening in my larger, right breast. Ultrasound was clear, it showed a thin er layer of breast fat coverung breast tissue, which meant the 'thickening' was actually normal breast tissue that was closer to the surface. Phew.

THANK YOU, for your words of support, in regard to work, I didnt want to reveal the nature of my appointment so they didnt know it was an urgent referral. Too embarrassing to say, silly I know. 

 

I hope your appointment brings good news, the staff as the clinic are very smooth and comforting. Please let us know how it goes!

Re: 23 years old, referral to breast clinic.

Hi I hope you got some answers at your appointment as I find waiting is the worst. I'm 25 and noticed a large lump between my breast & armpit which feels just like a chicken breast under the skin! My doctor referred me to the breast clinic, I had my appointment within a week which was on Monday. The consultant was conserned as it is such a large lump and he said it's quite unusual so he said I need an urgent ultrasound and probably a biopsy. I thought brilliant in going to find out what it is and I can stop worrying. But then he explained how they couldn't do any further tests today so I would receive a letter in the post for my urgent scan. I wasn't half as worried before this appointment but now he's said its urgent I'm nervously waiting for my letter for the scan, I just want some answers.

23 years old, referral to breast clinic.

Hi,

thought I'd share my story so far, it's not much but inacase there is others in my boat. The past 2 years, my right breast has been growing at a much faster rate than the other. I never noticed a difference in the past. Atm it is a HH cup whilst my left breast fits into  F cup. So, I have one enlarged breast. Lovely. Also, there is a slight thickening and a tiny lump, which doesnt go away. I also experience a dead weight/pain in my right shoulder and upper arm/elbow. And, back pain between my shoulder blades, which is probably do to my breast size. Also, the DR referred me as when I lost weight, the breast didn't shrink. 

Additionally,  I have irregular periods, last cycle was 126 days, no cramps, hardly any blood. Thats been checked out and is all normal, as can be. So DR sees no link between the two, so hes referred me. My appointment is Friday 10th July and I'm quite nervous as what to expect as im only 23.  I will update when I can.
