    Re: Anyone who has ever found a breast lump

    Ok. Period has been and gone and the lump is still there. I really think it might just be breast tissue but it feels larger and rounder than my other breast tissue.
    Iím supposed to be going to a wedding fayre today and booking our wedding venue. I should be super excited but this Ďlumpí is like a dark cloud over me.
    Iíve managed to get a GP appointment for Wednesday. But I feel silly because this same GP seen me in August and did a breast exam then.
    Oh well. Iíll not get closure any other way.

    It sounds like completely normal breast tissue, you are just hyper aware of every lump bump mark etc, I really wouldn't worry, go to your wedding Fayre today and try not to think about it, I now it's easier said than done, I wish I could take my own advice, but honestly what you have sound perfectly normal, I'm avoiding Drs at the moment you are very brave to keep going they make me feel physically sick if I never have to go to the Drs again in my life it will be to soon xxx

    Re: Anyone who has ever found a breast lump

    Thanks Herbie. I went through a phase where I was at the doctors every week. I hated going, I felt so ashamed, but they gave me the reassurance I desperately needed!
    I havnt been for two months now. A personal record since my HA started, and I really wish I could get closure another way, but I cannot think of one!

    Don't feel ashamed that's what they are there for, I just think you are braver than me because I seem to have gone the opposite way now I'm trying to avoid the Drs, xxxx

    3 days post period, and I can barely find the lump now!!! I think it was definitely just a fibrocystic change due to my monthly cycle. Gosh, it’s hard being female!!!
    So relieved!!!

    Axillary lymph nodes

    I’m overweight, yet I can feel some tiny nodules under my right armpit. They’re firm, but mobile, and probably about 5mm.
    I cannot feel the same on the other side.
    I’ve read that I shouldn’t be able to feel these.

    I’m trying not to go into panic mode. I once found a similar node in my neck, and my GP told me that they are only worrisome if they get bigger than 1cm or fixedbor painful.

    Anyone know better f the same applies with auxiliary nodes? I really don’t wanna trouble my GP if this is just another HA episode.
    Also, I didn’t have to dig to find them...I just pinched a tiny bit of skin and there they were!

    Well... You do have a bit of an obsession for armpit stuff and there's "I've read" = Dr. Google thing going on here too so

    I respect your opinions as I know you know a lot about lymph nodes. Does the same rule apply to all lymph nodes regardless of where they are on the body? (By that I mean that they are only considered swollen if they are bigger than 1cm?)

    Yes, I know Iím a nuisance. But Iím currently sitting in a shopping centre feeling like I want to cry over this. Itís been a long time since my HA has had me quite THIS panicked! So please, if there is any advice you can give me about this, please do.

    Ok. I challenge you. Based on the below statement, and this is true of any cancer, and the fact that this has been a worry for well over 6 months, what is the answer to your worry?

    Cancer is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. It doesn't come and go nor does it stop once it starts.
