I am so sorry that you are in this situation and I understand how frightening it can be. I don't know about the aches and pains, I think sometimes our bodies come out in sympathy when we fear something is wrong.
You are doing absolutely the right thing by getting a referral to the breast clinic and they will check everything out thoroughly.
I'm sorry you are feeling so scared. It might help to talk things over with one of our helpliners. They'll be able to offer practical information as well as emotional support. The opening times are 9-5 on weekdays and 10-2 on Saturdays. The number is 0808 800 6000
Him there. I found a lump just last week in my left breast. My g.p has referred me to the breast unit and I am waiting for my appt on the 4th dec. I have dull aching pains in my shoulder blade under my armpit and down my left arm. Could this possibly be anything else other than breast cancer. I have a one year old and a 3year old and am on my own with them and can't stop worrying about what might happen if I get poorly. Many thanks xxx
