    Thank you all for your advise.

    I still haven't plucked up the courage to go to the doctors. The lump is still there. Not got any bigger. It doesnt move and doesnt hurt.

    Could it still be a cyst or swollen glands

    Thank you again for all your advice

    Hi ladies

    Thank you all. Such a great site. And I appreciate all ur replys and advise.

    Like a donut I still haven't been to see my doctor mainly because im hoping its just a swollen gland.

    Yesterday after talking to my daughter and her asking me to take some pics of my breast and forward them onto her . So took photos . Sat back down ready to look through pics and select one to send to my daughter (who has been a fantastic listener n support)

    And WOW I was so shocked. " how did I not notice this" maybe cause its happened suddenly my right breast has got alot bigger than the other.( normally both breast are pretty much the sameish size )its massive, no visable lump, iv tried to feel for one but as im a 38dd my breast are always have been lumpy. So cant feel much. But I a sufferer of psoriasis . Have been for 6 ish years so wrn my right nipple started forming a crust it didnt worry me . . Im planning to phone doctors in morning for an appointment. But I doubt that eill happen cause im terrified.

    What s going on . Help pls?
