I hope the breast clinic can give you some peace and answers. I’m holding so much space for you and praying that you can find peace during all this. It is so hard. I truly understand.

So there’s been a balls up with my referral! Well there hasn’t but it has in my eyes. I had a letter through this morning to self book my appointment, I went online, no appointments, called the number, no appointments! They have sent it back to the breast clinic and I have to wait, but due to covid there could be a delay!! Nobody is telling me a time scale and I’m getting frustrated becuase I want it seen to!!!

Weekend is coming up so not much you can do now. But just wait. give yourself today and tomorrow to not think about it too much because you can’t really do much on weekends

I forgot what you had said, but what was the other lump in your other breast? What did they tell you?
That’s ok, it was a fibroadenoma, had an ultrasound for it, and I remember that before the ultrasound I showed the consultant the dimple I had in my breast too, but all worked out ok! Thankfully!

I have the exact same thing, have had it for almost 2 years, never got it checked out but at my last ob appt (before I found it) my doctor focused on that spot and I had wondered why. I noticed it after I stopped breastfeeding my son. How old are you? I’m 34 and found it when I was 33.
Not sure if i asked already, but did you have any nipple discharge along with the lump?
Mine is painless too. My obgyn looked at it and he said he thinks it is related to surgery (it was almost 8 months ago). My surgeon is seeing me at the end of the week for a check up anyway and said he would also look at it.
This lump coupled with the rash I had scares me to no end. The rash has gone away, but I’m still so panicked beyond belief. Everything is worrying me now. I am so sorry you’re struggling as well.
update.

Today I called my doctors surgery to find out what pathway I am on to the breast clinic, they say it’s an urgent referral so should have an appointment within 2 weeks and it’s at the one stop breast clinic, what’s the difference between that and normal breast clinic?

I don't know, I'm not sure there is a difference. I think it just means they will do all the scans they need (plus biopsy if needed) all at the same place in the same visit. Have you got a date for the appointment yet?

Glad you've got an appointment sorted. Shame it's almost 2 weeks away. How are you doing mentally?

Just over a week to wait - and counting! I’m ok, I’m still worrying about it and constantly checking it and googling even though Iv googled a million times and could read the internet without looking at it x

Bless you, it's so tough waiting around. Google really can be your worst enemy though. I hope you manage to distract yourself and get some rest and fingers crossed for good news at your appointment.

One week to go until my appointment, anxiety is definitely creeping in. I’m starting to picture myself being told I have to have a biopsy because they suspect cancer. And worrying where that’s going to leave me for the future. Grr, why does it feel like living is so difficult and so worrying! :(

Yes I keep checking it, I don’t think it’s changed but I can’t be 100% sure
Scrap that, I have just checked and I don’t think it moves anymore, and possibly grown a bit not so smooth anymore :oops: I am really scared they are going to tell me I have breast cancer!
