Re: Breast pain .

Hi Maria


I've only just joined the forum, as I've just been diagnosed (last week) with a right sided Invasive Ductal BC.  My symptoms started out as that chest pulling type pain. 


I had the removal of extensive microcalcifications in the same breast about 2 years ago.  I go to the gym, so before Christmas I started getting (just occasionally) this sharp pulling pain in the right breast.  It never even crossed my mind it could be BC.  However, a couple of weeks later I then discovered 2 lumps and its gone frm there.  I'm scheduled to have a mastectomy and hopefully reconstruction on the 16th March.  My right breast has now become very tender to touch and the sharp muscle, pulling pain is becoming more evident as time's going on.


I noticed you posted late January, so wondered how you were getting on?

Re: Breast pain .

Hi Maria,

So glad about your ct scan results, that sounds very reassuring.

As ever when going through this, the mind goes into overdrive & any ache or pain becomes magnified, it is quite common when going through this.

Once your treatment plan's confirmed & you're through this stage, it does get better.

take care
