Hi, just wondering if anyone can help a little. I've found a lump on my right breast two weeks ago. My breast was aching so accidentally came across the lunp. Without realising, a few months ago my nipple was so so painful to touch and I don't know if it was connected. It never entered my head to check my breasts at that point. (I can't believe how stupid I was!) anyway, I'm 38 years old and I went to my GP last week because not only did I have the lump , but on the same side but on my back I had a horrible burning sensation and pain. When at my GP's they diagnosed shingles (and gave me medication for it) and also confirmed the lump - gp said it was pea shape and has referred me to be seen which will be within two weeks. I'm such a laid back person and telling my partner and mother that I'm fine and not worried, but im actually worried sick. Why would my immune system be low to get shingles in the first place? I've read on google from posts years ago that shingles could be a sign of an underlying condition - I tell everyone who is ill never to look at the Internet, but it's the first thing I did - such a wally.
The not knowing and waiting is the hardest, I'd like to know one way or the other and deal with whatever it is.. Just feel so awful 😞 x
