I don't know where to start to be honest but I'm going out of my mind and really trying not to.
I found a lump in my right breast on the inner side inbetween the breast bone and nipple about 8 weeks ago now. I read up and decided to go through my cycle as I know some lumps can disappear. This hasn't and I'm fairly sure it's grown too.
It took me two weeks to get a gp appointment which was middle of last week and I've had a call today to say my breast screening appointment will be next Tuesday. I'm considering going private but can't really afford too, it's just that the worry is getting the better of me.
I wouldn't feel so concerned but I've not really felt well for a few months in myself. I've had ongoing problems with my chest and a persistent pain in my right shoulder when I breathe in which is now in my breast too. I've had a chest x-rayast last week so atleast that's done but i am really struggling with the wait. I'm sure I'm not the only one though.
I hadn't told anyone about the lump either until the day I saw the gp when I thought I should tell my husband. We've also told his mum too.
Have/did you all tell family and friends when you were just waiting and it could still be nothing?
I'm toying between telling people and not telling anyone. It's a total head messer isn't it x
No idea whether I'm posting this in the right place sorry.
