After about 2 weeks of a very painful left breast and nipple area-going very hard and pain intermittently, i found a lump around a week ago. I saw my gp today who examined me but gave no indication whether or not I should be concerned. All she said was oh yes, it’s vvery cylindrical. Well great, but what does that mean?! She felt my neck and under my arms and said they were fine. But didn’t give me any indication about the lump or the change in in nipple area. She has referred it for further tests and wants it seen within 2 weeks. I’m 27 with 2 small children and am now terrified.
