Hi, I understand how you feel as I have also been referred under the two week appointment. I was referred on Thursday and got my letter on Saturday so really quickly. It is not an appointment but telling me to call to make an appointment, so will call Monday when they open. I have a hard lump in my armpit but also my nipple has dropped lower on my left side. I did not even know that this was a symptom of breast Cancer. I have read that there is so much more they can do with better outcomes. So I'm trying to stay positive but it's difficult. This website is so good because personally I don't feel I am alone. There is a phone number on the homepage if you need to talk to someone. Hope it all goes well for you.

Hi, I am posting as it is difficult to talk to friends and family about this but I am worried and just wanted to speak with other people who will understand. I found a lump in my left armpit, it's a bit larger than a pea but only slightly, it does feel hard but does not hurt. I am also in my early 50's and post menopause as I had a full hysterectomy last year. I went to see my GP who said it is a swollen lymp gland and if I still have it in two weeks time she will refer me to the breast clinic, as swollen Lymp glands can also be a sign of infection. Well it's been 10 days since I saw my GP and the lump is still the same. My left breast has began to ache as well but probably because I keep poking it checking for lumps. Does anyone else have a lump in the armpit? what was the outcome? Also if it does not go away what should I expect to happen next? Many thanks
