It’s awful it really is! I’m petrified I have terminal cancer! Freaking out! Why can’t we just live a normal worry free life
I am totally with you. How is your other breast? When the inverted nipple, etc.

It’s not changed, it’s not like it completely inverts it’s like - slit like looking - if that makes sense, but it always comes back to normal almost instantly when I take off my bra or touch it etc, and believe me when it’s cold.... it’s cold lol. I don’t think I’m overly concerned by this, I’m just worried about the painless lump(s) behind my nipple! It’s terrifying me. Sorry I haven’t asked... how are u?

Julieann90 your lump sounds like something potentially caused by your piercing. If it is moving around then it is unlikely to be anything sinister. Hopefully you will get more information on your appointment tomorrow.

Thankyou for trying to reassure me! I will come back when I have spoke to the doctor x

What did the GP ask you?
He asked:
Where in the breast it is.
What breast
How big is the lump
Has it grown
Does it hurt
Is there an nipple discharge

I did mention I had my nipple pierced and he asked when, then he referred me.

I’m just sorry you’re going through this stress.
How long ago did you have your piercing?
We are all sorry for each other, it is very stressful, it’s not a nice feeling living life in fear all of the time. At young ages. I had it done 7 months ago, it makes me wonder if it has been there all along because if I’m honest I don’t regularly check my nipples, that’s not good.

Tonight I keep having sharp pains shooting through my nipple, I mean I have had it on numerous occasions, but this feels different, stronger and stings. Think I am just going to be like this until I know for sure what’s going on, constant panicking and worrying! If I don’t talk on here then I will just google!!

Honestly I’m terrified, one minute I feel ok and I’m like telling myself to stop being silly everything is fine and then the next I’m convinced it’s the worst possible outcome! It’s so draining!

Don’t you have a lump on your other breast as well?
