It's your appointment, your body, your health - mention absolutely everything you think may be relevant.

 

Good luck for 10th

Yes definitely mention it - you may as well make sure you have a thorough check. Hopefully it will be nothing but it will put your mind at rest. Xx

Should I bring this up at my appointment?

Hi everyone, apologies in advance for this slightly self indulgent and possibly rambling post!

Just after new year I noticed my right breast felt really hard, almost akin to when I had a blocked duct whilst breastfeeding.  I kept an eye on it, did change, but I still felt a lump. Waited until my period, it was still there,  so I went to the gp,  who examined my breasts and underarms, gave my chest and neck a very quick check. She made an urgent referral to the suspected breast cancer screening unit and I've got my appointment on 10th of this month. Since then, I've noticed a really prominent lump on the bone beneath my collar bone, but on my left side. I don't know if it was there before, have become hypervigilant since then (obviously!), and I can actually see it when I look in the mirror. 

Is it worth mentioning this when I go for my screening, or am I just being OTT?!
