I feel a bit silly coming here as my doctor has said the lump in my breast is most likely a fibroadenoma but since my appointment yesterday I'm feeling very sick and anxious.
I'm 24 and have had a lump in my right breast for just over a year, this has been accompanied by an intense pain close to my armpit which doesn't go away and more visable veins on the same breast. Yesterday was the first time I’ve seen a doctor about it as my husband has been nagging me to go and get it checked. The nerves I had before my appointment were ridiculous and I don't think that has helped with the sickness i'm getting.
The doctor examined me and said it didn't look like anything to worry about but he wanted to send me for a scan as they recommend checking out anyone who comes in with a lump. Is it normal to send a 24 year old for a scan on a suspected fibroadenoma? I was under the impression that younger people were not sent for scans very often and it has got me worried.
Since my appointment I have been feeling really sick. I think it’s just the anxiety of waiting all that time to see a doctor and then being told I need a scan, which I wasn’t expecting. I’m trying to take my mind off it, I’m very young and it’s normal to have benign lumps, I just wish this horrible sick feeling would disappear!!
Apologies for the rambling x
