welcome to the forum. Completely understandable that you are worried but you are doing the right thing getting it checked out. Remember that the majority of referrals turn out to be nothing. 

Are you taking someone with you to your appointment for support? I would also suggest staying away from google, he’s nobody’s friend st times like this and will cause you more worry, 

There are lots of lovely people in here who will offer their support. Hoping for a good result for you. Try to keep yourself busy. Let us know how you get on.

Hi I am at the clinic on Tuesday had some breast soreness so been referred to settle my mind however I’ve found a lump in my armpit a couple of days ago which is worrying me insanely. I have had folliculitis for a few months in both armpits which keeps recurring after antibiotics so thought that might be why I am sore. Now on antibiotic gel. It’s an awful waiting game so know exactly how you are feeling x
