I noticed a change


Re: I noticed a change

Hi Shazna

Thanks for your post, and as Shi says, your question isn’t silly at all as we encourage everyone to be breast aware and check for changes

It’s natural to worry when you do notice a change though. However, breast changes can happen for many reasons. They may be due to hormonal changes as part of your monthly cycle (period) or due to benign conditions (not cancer). You’ll probably find your breasts change quite a bit throughout your life. For more details see our booklet Know your breasts: a guide to breast awareness and screening.

Breast cancer is uncommon in women in their 30s so the change you have noticed is more likely to be because of one of the reasons mentioned above rather than cancer.

As we’re not able to say for certain what the cause of the breast change is, we would always suggest that you make an appointment with your GP to have it checked. As you mention, you are experiencing some chest pain, it’s also important to get this checked out promptly.

Do call our Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. Your call will be confidential, and the number is free from UK landlines and all mobile networks. The number is 0808 800 6000, (Relay UK -prefix 18001).

If you would like a nurse to call you do complete this form. Ticking the box agreeing to a call back.

Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.

Best wishes
