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!
