I found a huge lump in my breast!

A few weeks ago, I found a big lump in my chest, just above the breast. It's about as big as a cocktail sausage, and I hadn't noticed it before. I think it's getting bigger.

I don't know if I only noticed it now because it was covered up with fat before, or whether it's new.

I went to the doctor and expected him to say that it's nothing, just a muscle knot or something.

But he said it's definitely a big lump in the actual breast tissue (not chest) and has referred me to the breast clinic for a biopsy or a scan.

I know that even though I have a strong family history of breast cancer, the odds of me developing it, aged 24, are very low, but I can't help worrying!

:sigh:

Just wanted to get that off my chest (no pun intended...!)

Not much I can say really but am sending you all the good luck vibes in the world. Hope the biopsy comes through quickly and the results are good! ((()))

Just hold on, try not to panic. I know you must be really worried, but worrying can't influence the outcome, so push it from your mind until the results are back. Easier said than done, I know.

Best wishes.

Hey gina,

I'm off to have my biopsy tomorrow, and I am not sure how long it takes them to work out the results.

It's kind of nerve wrecking, but I'm sure it's nothing...

Thanks for all your support everyone.

Good luck...here's hoping it's just a cyst or something. Fingers crossed. The NHS is very hot on this kind of thing, they'll see you as soon as possible.

I had my scan the other day - turns out I don't have a lump in my breast, but some sort of musculo-skeletal bump on my chest and also back... they're not sure what it is, so I'm going to have an MRI, but at least it's not a bad breast lump! Yay!
