    Ive kept this to myself for about 2 weeks now but need to get it off my chest.

    I was in the shower about a fortnight ago and found a hard lump on what feels like the bone above my right breast. I know I should go to the doctors and/or tell someone but omg I am terrified! I couldnt get out of the shower quick enough when I found it, just wanted to get dressed, get clothes on and forget about it.

    I am only 26 and the lump feels hard. There is a history of the unthinkable in my family so as you can imagine I am beside myself. I know I need to get it seen too but am so frightened at the moment!

    I'm just wondering if anyone else has been in this situation and how they dealt with it

    I had a similar situation to you (i'm 22 with a history of breast cancer in the family)

    Its good your going to the special unit, they were really good with me, got examined and sent for a ultrasound (too young for mamagram) and got told its a normal structure so didn't have to have a biopsy.

    I know its stressfull and worrying but odds are it will be nothing.

    They refer everyone round here to the breast care unit which is good. Going on 21st January which considering it's Xmas and we have lots of bank holidays isn't too bad a wait at all!

    I'm feeling a lot brighter about things ATM, feeling mighty positive lol
