Hello! I am 20 years old and recently I have noticed that one of my breasts has began to drop, the other day I began to get an uncontrollable discomfort in my right breast and later on that day I found a large pea sized lump above my nipple which is quite red on and around it. All above this has become covered in speckled bruises like little dots and towards my armpit I have quite a few dimples (like the skin of an organge). With having a long family history of multiple kinds of cancer including breast, I became slightly worried. My grandmother had 4 sisters that all died before they were 50 due to this and so my mum told me to contact my GP as she was worried also. My GP was beyond rude to me and made me feel so stupid for even calling. He said I am too young to even be considered as having breast cancer and refused to see me. He told me I had probably done this damage to myself and not realised but he didnt even let me explain fully how my right breast is appearing (if he did he would realise i couldn't have done this to myself!). I am a student nurse and don't take ringing the doctors lightly unless i feel like i need to. He said there is nothing he can do and I should ring back in a few weeks if it hasn't gone but explained that he wouldn't be sending me for any tests as he doesnt believe I could develop this at 20 years old, I did tell him about my family history. I have also been throwing up a lot, a few times a week feeling like I have a sickness bug, but I am on the contraceptive implant. I'm too embarrassed to seek any other help of that kind now so I was looking to see if anyone else could help with this? Thank you!
