Hello everyone. I found a lump in right breast it feels large but I can’t really tell. My other breast feels soft but this breast feels hard. It’s around the nipple area. I know I need to see the doctor but my nerves are gone. Has anyone had a lump like this ?
Hi Fredo. I know you will be worried but please go to the Doctors to get checked, you don’t say how old you are but I presume you are young, it could be a number of things like a Cyst or just lumpiness the treatment now is very good , so please go to see the Doctors, will be thinking about you.Sending Hugs.
Hiya Bobbylou. Thank you for reply. I’m 57 I looked after my mum with breast cancer think that’s why I’m so nervous. I need to go doctors because my breast looks different than the other breast now. Im so aware of it as I can feel it through my clothes. Thank you again. Take care
Please go and get this checked out. Delay won't change the outcome it is what it is.
My friend who lost her mum to breast cancer found a lump and was terrified. It turned out to be nothing. Some very minor surgery and all done
When I found my lump I raced to doctor convinced it was nothing. Ok it's not nothing. But it's been caught quickly.
Hello Fredo we're all with you on this, go get it checked out instead of worrying about something that potentially you may not have to worry about.
I know where i live they do a 2 weeks to cancer, which means from going to your doctor you will be seen within 2 weeks. This DOES NOT mean you have cancer it just means you get seen quicker. My daughter did this and it turned out to be a Fibroadenoma. So go get it checked.
Let us know how you get on and in the meantime we're here to listen,
Best of luck xxx

Thank you means a lot for your support. I will go doctors and let you know xx
Thank you for reply I will go.I hate putting my kids through this I went through it with my mother. I will wait for results before telling them anything.
Take care xx
Yes I agree don't tell the children until you something to tell them that's concrete. I didn't tell my granddaughter until I knew everything I could I causing chemo. Bit that gives you time to plan what, how and when you tell them. That's if there's anything to tell. But if don't tell them your not putting them through anything, it's you your putting through the mill with uncetainity.
Please keep in touch. Let us know what happens.
I was only duahnisef on 2st March and it's bern a real rollercoaster, but for the people on here is have jumped off a cliff. Well no I wouldn't but you know what I mean
