    Found breast lump - breast clinic tomorrow...Mother age 37...Petrified

    Hi everyone,

    Around 2 weeks ago I found a breast lump in my upper inner quadrant of my left breast. It feels hard and non mobile and when I went to see the nurse practioner she said she could feel it and it was like a grain of rice...to me it feels more pea like.

    I have my breast clinic referral appointment tomorrow at 09.50am. I am particularly scared because I have been referred twice before (once in 2007 and once in 2012) and they were fibroidenomas but felt less sinister as a bit tender and larger and did move and were in the opposite breast to what I have found now.

    I am absolutely terrified. However, research does tell me in the UK ladies age 35-39 that get breast cancer there are 2200 cases per year and there are 1 million ladies my ages in the UK so I know that means I have a 0.02 chance but I stupidly went on a Facebook breast cancer uk ladies group and counted over 40 my age all who thought they had nothing to worry about also.

    I have a little boy who is 7 and I keep crying when I think of him.

    I have severe emetophobia so the idea of any treatment even if caught early and curable is making me physically heave and I am shaking constantly.

    I feel an absolute bag of nerves.

    Hi there Iím 36 and went breast clinic 2 months ago. There were a lot of women there I think it shows you how many lumps and bumps we all get from time to time. It is great you are getting it checked And Iím sure it will be fine. Mine was a cyst and like you think Iím prone to them as have had various bumps previous. Itís also good that itís only been a couple of weeks it could be hormonal. Itís horrible going through tests but you have to look after yourself. Take a book with you and it will be over before you know it. The clinics are very good and see so many women all the time and majority itís benign please donít worry xxxx
