Small Breast lump found

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all,  I found a very small pea size lump under my nipple.  I wasn't too concerned at first, I'm approaching 50 and going through the menopause.  As you do when you find something that shouldn't be there or haven't noticed before - you become very aware and I started prodding it - within a few days a puss like lump appeared under the skin which was very sore and appeared to be filled with puss.  I became extremely worried and went to the doctor - I am now waiting to be seen at the breast clinic and then hopefully have to have it sorted.  The lump eventually got smaller in size but is still there and now looks like a bruise on my skin ....... I am very worried obviously, cannot wait to be seen !!
