Re: Anxious newby

thickening is something I felt in the breast itself, not under my arms. It was a very definite change in the texture of my breast that made it feel obviously different to the other one. less soft and more dense. I didnt have a lump at all though. Hopefully yours is something benign. I do think though you will find you are as strong as you need to be - its amazing what you can cope with when you have to.

Hi i have just been to my gp(friday) with a small lump i have found, its just the size of a pea. The Gp said its not a cyst and she isnt too concerned about it, but would refer me to the breast clinic for reasurance. I am pretty freeked out about it and even more so that she said it was an up to 3 month waiting list :(.

Its hopefully and probably nothing. I keep reading about people feeling thickening in the breast and i have no idea what that means. I have notised under my armpits feels odd and my breasts feel more notisable there. Like i have been to the gym and did some arm and shoulder exercises. Is this the feeling they are referring too?

I am 35 this year and lost my dad to lung cancer over a year ago. I cant put my family through all that.


Any advice is apprciated
