Hi and thanks for your post

It's not surprising you are nervous, as many people find that having a symptom that needs investigating is quite a stressful time.

Everyone's experience is going to be quite different to yours, but hopefully someone will post soon with some of their experiences at a breast clinic.

It's not possible to say what the lump may be, but it's good that you have already received an appointment.

You may want to read the following link to our website https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/breast-cancer/getting-diagnosed/tests-diagnose about what to expect at a breast clinic appointment.

If you would like to have a chat about what's going on for you, please do give us a ring.The number to call is Freephone 0808 800 4040 and the lines are open from 9am till 5pm Monday to Friday.

All the best

Wanda
