Hi all. I'm 33,F and very overweight.
I went to the GP in the last6 months to year with a lump on my left side of my breast. GP and a student both had a feel and said probably a fatty lump.
A few days ago I was in shower and noticed a lump in my armpit, pea-sized, round/oval firm and painless. Went to GP today she said it's very noticeable and also said that the breast tissue feels different in the area I saw the GP with previously......
I have been referred to the breast care centre and said urgent should take 2 weeks max but there's a huge backlog and if haven't heard in 6 weeks to call them?!
to be told your tissue is different and have a distinctive lump in the armpit and no real explanations or possible reasons left up to 6 weeks is to me just horrible. I feel extremely scared, upset and low.
There's a family history (gran) of breast cancer.
any reasons why tissue would feel different? I work for 111 so don't particularly want to call them for advice. Thank you
