Re: Breast pain and discharge

Thanks Kess, just so crazy really. I will ask more questions, I want s biopsy really to make sure nothing bad is going on in the ducts. Gp said to ask for one this time and ultrasound of whole breast not just nipple.x

Re: Breast pain and discharge

Hi Kess,

 

I did have an ultrasound, they said no lumps, ducts are enlarged, I can have them removed but they want me to wait for a few months to see if it calms down.  Also spoke to Brest care nurse again yesterday as still in pain etc, I have some tablets from the Doctors incase there is an infection. So just confused really, but will have to take it they are right and what and see.  Just feel worried but they don't seem to be??

Re: Breast pain and discharge

did you just have a mammo? if you stil have pain and discharge and itching then something is clearly not right.... Maybe call the helpline to get some advice but if you havent had ultrasound you should ask for one.

Re: Breast pain and discharge

Glad you got the all clear. Frustrating when something is still not right though. I know that feeling as when I got given the all clear 2 weeks ago after mammogram and ultrasound I found myself still thinking why are my breasts like this then?? Just so confusing and upsetting isnt it x

Re: Breast pain and discharge

Hi,

 

Well got a call from Breast Clinic Friday, stating that the mammogram was clear no lumps, but I am to wait now to here from consultant, I am still in pain, I can't touch the nipple area so tender, it's getting me down now really. Don't get me wrong I am glad there was not lumps, but what is causing the pain, discharge and itching, I am going to call the clinic again today, to see if they can advise.

Just an update and feeling I need to get it out of my sytem thanks for listening as always.

Re: Breast pain and discharge

so sorry to hear you are still having delays it seems really poor. can you try getting your local PALS involved? or someone else to mediate on your behalf. Shelly I am particularly concerned given your symptoms. You really need to know where you stand. Did you get seen today?

Re: Breast pain and discharge

I'm the same shelly. I just want it all to be over with and know what's going on. I phoned ultrasound yesterday and they told me the first appointment they could offer me was the 2nd of March! My consultant said I wouldn't wait any longer than a few days. It's infuriating.

Re: Breast pain and discharge

Mine was done before I saw the screening doctor, but don't know if that was because my symptoms warranted it or if that was standard. I also had an early appt!

Re: Breast pain and discharge

So many people seem to have been told this today... I'd never heard of people being sent away and told to come back for their mammograms/scans before but I think you're about the third I've read on here today! How frustrating... and how annoying that the wait and the worry has to continue!

Keeping everything crossed for you. x

Re: Breast pain and discharge

Hi Kess,

 

Thanks for the comment, only a couple of days now, I feel calm at times and worried at other times, but that's normal. 

 

I know everyone is different, but has anyone had the pain with the discharge/feels like when your breastfeeding like tingling (strange)?

 

it's just the waiting, that's stressing more than anything, as OH is away having to go to appointment on my own:( must be brave!

 

Will let you know whatever the outcome.

Re: Breast pain and discharge

Hopefully it's nothing, but your symptoms warrant getting it checked especially with your history. Hope you get good news on Thursday. Try to keep busy and distract yourself as much as possible till then. Do let us know how it goes.

Breast pain and discharge

Hi,

 

I am 35 years old, and over the last month so have had a small amount of discharge from my left nipple, over the last week or so, it's also very itchy, went to GP and got referred to Breast Clinic 2 weeks ago, Hospital lost the fax and got fast tracked yesterday, with appointment next Thursday, feeling strange go from worried to calm.  I had a lump removed 10 years ago from Right boob, it was fine just a fatty lump.  I have lumpy boobs so I have been down this road 2 years ago and it was ok, but I am really worried this time.

 

I know everyone is different, but did anyone have this kind of issue?

 

This time I am worried, the boob feels strange, like when your breast feeding and it tangles and just feels odd. 

 

Sorry to bumble on, but don't like to worry family members to much.  Thanks for listeningxx
