Hiya, just wondering about my boob as you do, i am 38 years old and around 7 weeks ago I noticed a thickened area in my right breast near the top and side, just because I wasn't sure I got my mum to have a check she felt it and I thought I would wait until after I had my period to see if it settled down I waited 3 weeks and it didn't, made an appointment with my gp (3wk wait lol) and then it felt like it had gone but I wasn't sure if it had gone or I was just used to it being there? If you know what a mean like a wobbly tooth it's strange at first but then the norm. Anyway I saw my gp who had a prod about and agreed and referred me to the breast clinic. I have had breast pain in this breast for the last couple of months and my underarm is occasionally sore (feels bruised) for a couple of days at a time I have no visable changes apart from my boob feels heavier and fuller I don't want to waste the time of the breast clinic should I be concerned ? Sorry it's long winded been pondering my mum is worrying bless her .
