Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

They put in the local anaesthetic which is a little stingy but ok it's not horrible. Then they give you a few mins while it kicks in. They make a tiny little incision which you can't feel then take the samples (I had 3) they don't hurt its like a being jabbed with a pen or something (Hard to describe) but you can't feel the needle if you get what I mean, then you are patched up. It feels like I've got a badly pulled a muscle now but it's been much better since I put a non wired support bra on instead of my underwired one. I've been taking paracetamol and its ok x x

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

It was the pain that alerted me to checking my boobs in the first place I usually check them once a month but checked them earlier then noticed the lumps, I know there are many begin conditions much more then I thought so fingers crossed for both of us that it's something simple xx

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

I have about 4/5 lumps all together I feel some & they feel like fatty lumps (only way I know this is cause I already have one in right breast and about 2 feel same as this) but I have a very hard thickening / mass towards the top of my breast the tissue feels really hard and there is two lumps within which are Unmoevable & very hard feeling other then that I have the pain which seems to be worse 😞 it's hard isn't it. Everyone says to me if u keep stressing like this you'll be grey lol! Have u been gettin any breast pain ? Xx

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

Just a question. Do either of yours have any outward sign of anything. I can't keep going over the fact that mine is hard, very irregular in shape has hardened veins/ducts/tendons coming from it and I have a very prominent puckered (almost scar looking) line running from under my nipple area to the lump. As you can tell today I am less calm 😕 x x

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

I understand what you mean about the depression I have been feeling really down & no matter what anyone says to you nothing makes you feel better! Not sure what I have will have never been to this breast clinic before ( last time went private) I have multiple lumps in my breast but the two which concern me the most are also hard like yours! It's the waitin that's so hard isn't it , I feel like Atleast when I know what is wrong I can hopefully deal with it & Atleast I will know! Can't believe how Many of us ladies are all in this together! When is your biopsy date ? Xx

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

Maybe a fibroadenoma. Nurse mentioned a cyst but I thought they showed up on ultrasound and were fluid filled, I know this is a solid mass so it is unlikely to be a cyst. Not sure why nurse said that to be honest! Am actually feeling symptoms of depression at the moment which I have never had in my life, and I'm sure this is partly responsible for it. Is your appointment for an ultrasound hun bun? X

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

Frances1985 sorry to hear that can't imagine how your feeling I have been really anxious & stressed just waiting for my appointment. Did they give you any idea what they think it could be ? As I had ultrasound before for a "fatty lump" and specialist confirmed It there & then probably like you said the same as the lady who went in before you , just try and be strong and hopefully you won't be waiting much longer and you will know it's hard to stay positive but we are all here for you please let us know how u get on x

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

Hi again lovely ladies. The doctor and nurse said they think it is nothing to worry about but can't be sure so have to do core biopsy. I should be very reassured by the fact that they said they think it is harmless, but if know of cases where people are diagnosed on the spot with ultrasound, so I, of course, am asking myself "why wasn't this me?" The girl who went into the ultrasound before me came out saying all was fine and how relieved she was, I assumed I'd be the same, but here I am waiting for a core biopsy. I can't help but think of my mum who had 2 doctors tell her her mammogram results were most likely benign, yet they turned out to be cancer! A'rrrrgh.

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

For once in my life I'm actually hoping someone's going to tell me "you've got fat!" (I'm feeling very playful today maybe my thought process is changing, either that or I've finally cracked 😉 ) x x

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

Thanks lisamo . Think it's all the stress & tension just trying to keep busy . I think as I am 25 they take it as it not being anything serious there is such a stigma around doctors / people not believing that the C word does happen to youger women it makes my blood boil! Xx

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

The anxiety & stress is unbearable today. How do u all manage to keep strong while waitin for appointment ? I've been so run down I've brought on a bout of flu & also ao stressed about my breast that my ibs is back with a vengeance even though it's only 6 days away now the wait feels never ending! X

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

I'm in South Wales so not to far apart 🙂 also I do believe if your lump is beign they tell u there & then as when I visited the breast clinic I saw the specialist who said it felt like nothin to be concerned about but did ultrasound the radiographer said straight away it's a fatty lump specialist looked at scans & confirmed so I knew there and then what it was , I assume it's the same everywhere although I know if they need to biopsy you need to wait for the results I think.

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

I'm from the South of England hunbun3. Yeah they really are the first one a fluke the second long awaited (with a little nudge we got there lol).

Frances1985 did they give you any clues at your scan. I've been told by a couple of people that our unit do all the tests on the same day and to expect the appointment to last up to 4 hours. Apparently they try and give you as many of the results as they can feasibly on the day. So I'm hoping the same applies for me as it did for them x x

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

Yes dmcf a girl she's 4 & also my world where abouts in UK are you? You have two little miracles then 🙂 we would also like another I've wanted one for about 3 years lol!

Frances1985 we are all In this together sadly 😞 seems to be more & more younger women finding lumps these days. When are u having your core biopsy ? Did they say alot to you when u had your u/s? Can't imagine how u feel especially being in the middle of your birthday keep you in my thoughts and fingers crossed for u xx

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

I also have a lump in my left breast which I have had an ultrasound for and am now awaiting core biopsy for. I am 29 in 13 days time, my birthday will fall slap bang in the middle of waiting for results :-(. The anxiety is horrible isn't it and I hate it when people say not to worry! I know they are just trying to be nice, but you can't help but worry. Good luck ladies. Xx

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

Yes I totally understand what you mean , I have prepared myself for the worst partner doesn't understand this tho as he says you've stressed so much over it (surprised I haven't made myself I'll) that what If it turns out to be nothing and you worried about it for the past 4 weeks! I understand what he means but as soon as you find a lump I think all women fear the worst! I actually have left prodding mine and felt them for the first time this morning in a while just hoping and praying we both get a good outcome how old are tour children If you don't mind me asking? Xx

Re: Lump left breast.. Worried sick :(

I know what you mean about the prodding. I have a check every night b4 bed. And the people saying "you're young so it's probably nothing" I feel less anxious every day now in all honesty (not because of the reassurances of it'll be nothing) but because my mum & husband seem willing to talk about what ifs with me as no one else will they all just keep saying it'll be ok. It's nice to chew the fat with them so that if it isn't the answer I want at least I feel like I have a plan in place. What's the saying expect the best prepare for the worst x
