Hi Kelly,
My lump felt like the tissue was being pinched. The lump itself was v hard and hence tissue near it felt a tad pressurised.
My lump turned out to be invasive ductal carcinoma.
But it is possible to have a hard lump of fatty necrosis which may feel similar? I'm further along the journey now...happy to help if you have q's

Hi again,

Hope you are well xx

I just wanted to ask you if the larger lump you have hurts you at all ?

My small lump which has already been checked an confirmed as fibroadenoma never hurt...its not like this bigger lump is unbearable pain, its just so tender all the time. The slightest knock to it does hurt !

Take care

Re: Change in left breast size and constantly tender n sore !

Hi Mel,

Thank u for you lovely message. I went to see my doctor on Thursday. He confirmed there was a lump and its quite big. He said he will be referring me to the breast clinic an i automatically went into shock mode..The doctor said i should have my appointment through within a week. I left the doctors an cried my eyes out in the car. For some reason i just have a bad feeling because this has grown and it still feels so tender, just the slightest knock to it hurts. It is completely different from the lump i found in my right breast last year (which is Fibroadenoma) but i just cant help but worry...its a waiting game for me right now an all ive done since thursday is keep busy surround myself with people an just not talked about it. Ive kind of blocked it out but when i do think about it i well up n its horrible...i am trying to think positive but i feel as though if i talk about this with my loved ones, it wont do me any good...i always try to be the strong one n this is so difficult...an i even tell myself now, 'come on Kel, it might be nothing to worried about' but i cant help but feel scared and worried. Im anxious to get this appointment and get to it but im also dreading it too...im not very good with needles either so last time when they took a sample with a needle to test it it hurt, so because this other lump is so much bigger and the fact that my breast is sore anyway im petrified...feel like i am rambling on here but feels like i just need to get it out. I just hope n pray it nothing serious.

Anyway thanx for listening/reading my thoughts and feelings

Hi Kelly1983,

 

You have done the best thing by arranging to see your GP. Any changes to your breasts should be checked out, just for your peace of mind. Your GP will probably refer you to your local breast clinic, but don't be concerned if this happens; it is normal procedure.

 

Some people jump to conclusions if they get referred, assuming the worst, but don't! Most lumps turn out to be perfectly innocent.

 

Another piece of advice is DON'T GOOGLE!!! It is the worst thing you can do! Stay on specialist sites like this one. The best thing you can do for yourself right now is wait and see... talk to anyone you feel comfortable talking to if you're worried. It helps to get it out of your system. Feel free to poor your feelings out on here! That's what the site is for (as well as good advice and tips from people in similar situations!)

 

I really wish you all the best. Try not to worry, and spend your time with your lovely kids 🙂

 

Love, Mel.

Hi,
Thank you for your reply. I am a worrier myself and always think the worse of everything. The pain i feel in my left breast isnt just there when im on my period its there all the time. My partner was inspecting this too last night and he said to make sure i get to the doctors and i have today made an appointment. I will try not to worry about it until i have seen my GP..i just hope its nothing series because i have two small children and they are my main priority ! X

Re: Change in left breast size and constantly tender n sore !

Hello there
I have recently diagnosed with fibroadanoma ,i had the mammogram ultrasound and biopsies,when I rang clinic early my results showed a large one in my right breast which I was aware of a and a small one in left,I see consultant this week as breast care nurse told me he wants to remove the big one as they can keep growing,apparently size of a lemon wow!!i would not get too uptight as we all have lumps and bumps that appear on our monthly cycle!this large one does hurt before a period then softens again afterwards!i suffer from anxiety and was thinking the worse was such a relief when I knew it was a fibroadanoma,I am going to have it removed as it is a quick procedure ,take care and please do ask me anything you like?xxx

Change in left breast size and constantly tender n sore !

Hi, just over a year ago i found a small lump in my right breast. I made appointment to see my GP. He referred me to have a scan. I went to the scan and also had a biopsy and it came back that the lump is fibroadenoma. This has been monitored and not changed in size. BUT i had never found this lump painful in any way. For a long while, probably not long after the lump scare i have had a sore tender feel to my LEFT breast that is constantly there. Its has gone bigger in size and where my right breast feels soft and can squeeze it, the Left one, that is constantly tender and is hard. I have felt for lumps n can say ive found a few small ones. I have been so worried about it an am starting to feel concerned by the stuff i have read online on other website...i just wondered if there was anyone out there who may have had similar symptoms to mine an can shed some light. I intend to ring the doctors first thing tomorrow to make an appointment.
