    Hi

    Sorry you are having these problems. As you have only a few days to wait I'd reckon its best to do that as they probably wont be able to fit you in earlier at this short notice.

    I know what its like to have worrying symptoms as I have just been through the same. Had pain in left breast, change in shape and feel of both, blue veins and itchiness so was terrified it was bad. Anyway had appt at clinic last week and had mammogram and ultrasound and results were normal. So never assume its bad until you know for sure.

    You could contact breast cancer care free helpline on 0808 8006000 as they are really good at giving advice and reassurance. They are open Mon-Fri 9am-5pm and Sat 10am-2pm. Also visit their website www.breastcancercare.org.uk as there is loads of info on there and forums where you can talk to others with similar problems. I found it all so helpful when I was worried.

    Hope this helps xx
