Breast lump

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've been to doctor today who has referred me for scan as I found a pea sized lump in my left breast .It's hard and moveable . I'm going out my mind with worry and don't think I can cope with the 2 week wait .did says she don't think it's cancer but referring me anyway. Just need a chat cause I can't tell anyone and feel so scared and lonely

      I've had many scans, mammograms and physical examinations too but this time I'm really worried. Is ur lump hard or soft ?

    Try to settle down and stop worrying. It's most likely not cancer. Most breast lumps are benign. The doctor has to have it scanned to rule out something more serious, so don't freak out just because she ordered the test. Doctors play it safe.

    You have two good things going for you: One, the lump is movable; and two, the doctor doesn't think it's cancer. (That's great!)

    I know it's hard to not worry, but it's most likely a benign lump, so try to relax and not stress over it. Looking forward to hearing good news after your scan!
