Re: Back here again!

Hi Frances, your never wasting anyone's time, if your concerned then it's the right thing to do, I'm waiting on an appt regarding calcification, this is my second time I've been referred, hopefully for both of us everything will be just fine, it's always better to air on the side of caution. My breasts can feel very bruised and tender also, us women eh what we have to put up with, try to stay positive, and good luck, keep posting hun xx

Back here again!

Hi all,

 

I am 29 and found this forum to be a huge source of support back in October when I had a breast lump scanned and biopsied. Thankfully it turned out to be a benign fibroadenoma.

 

I went to the GP today as the lump is constantly painful and it is driving me mad. If my boyfriend even goes near my boob I tell him to go away and the lump feels like it is extremely bruised and is very tender to touch. It has been like this for a while and I initially thought it was hormonal, but the pain is getting worse and much more frequent.

 

Anyway, I expected to go to the GP and walk away with some sort of painkiller but I have been re-referred back to the breast clinic! I asked her what she thought of the lump and she said "well the area just feels lumpy". She put me through the 2 week referral, probably because of history and due to the fact that I have BC in my family. Thankfully I am nowhere near as worried as last time as the lump hasn't grown (well I don't think it has anyway) but I really wasn't expecting to be back at the clinic so soon. No idea what tests they will do, she said maybe an ultrasound? Simultaneously I am worried the breast nurses/doctors will think I am wasting their time turning up there with breast pain!
