Breast Indentation

16 Jul 2019 01:17

I’m 16, and have been worried about breast cancer for a long time. The other night, I was getting a quick shower and noticed a flattening on my left breast. However, I didn’t have enough time to check it over properly. 

Today, I had a better look at it and noticed that it became an indentation when I raised my arm. I told my mum and I have a GP appointment tomorrow. I’m known for being a bit of a hypochondriac, but upon finding this my anxiety has rocketed and I don’t jnow what to do with myself. I keep researching and the outcome doesn’t look good, so I’m naturally very worried. Does anyone have any advice?

Worry does not help. Even if you have cancer it can be cured. Try to think positively. I had a lumpectomy, a tiny part of one breast was taken and all was removed. I still have 2 breasts and feel normal, in that respect. Nothing hurt, treatment is done whilst you are asleep . BUT you may not have it. 

Well done for checking your breasts, very sensible, the best way to catch anythingbefore it becomes a bigger problem. Good luck. X
