Re: Painful and worried

I understand what you're going through. I too have symptoms in just one boob, and I have my clinic appointment thursday for tests. I've also had the occasional shooting pain and tenderness, though it's been mainly itchiness and now have flattened nipple, indent and I'm fairly sure I've discovered a couple of lumps.

Re: Painful and worried

Thank you so much for your reply. The wait is definitely difficult! Still experiencing the same pain, just trying to keep myself busy and distract myself.

 

Thank you again xx

Re: Painful and worried

It doesn't sound ridiculous so please don't worry about asking these questions. You are right that pain is rarely a sign of cancer, but it can be. So you are right to get it looked into. But even though it's only one breast it could still easily be something benign. I know 2 weeks probably feels ages, but it's quite a normal time to wait and 2 weeks is very unlikely to make a difference even if you do have something to worry about. Try and distract yourself for the next few days and really hoping it's good news for you.

Painful and worried

Hi, I'm sorry if this post is ridiculous - I'm just so worried. I know it's said often that breast pain isn't usually associated with breast cancer. However, I've been having these intermittent shooting pains in my right breast only, around the nipple, just above the nipple, and just to the right of it, for the last month and a bit. I've also had some aching and tenderness under my arm. I can't feel any lumps at the moment, but my breasts are quite dense.

 

Initially I thought it was hormone related, but the fact it's in one breast only and has lasted more than one cycle is worrying me. I don't drink much caffeine, rarely wear a bra (small chested) and have had no injury to my breast.

 

Has anyone else had these symptoms? Or do they sound familiar? The earliest I could have an appointment at the clinic is in two weeks and the wait is just making me more anxious.

 

Thank you for your time.
