Thread: Sore breast, with a lump

    Sore breast, with a lump

    Hi. Iím posting this as Iím feeling very worried about my Mum. She is complaining of breast pain and has found a lump in said breast. Over the years sheís had lots of lumps and mammograms etc, and itís always come back fine, but every time this happens itís sends me into a spiral of worry which I cannot shake off. I keep thinking that this time itíll be bad news. She has an appointment next week but until then Iíll just have it constantly whirring around in my mind. Does anybody have any advice on how to calm down?! She doesnít seem as worried as me!

    Doctor didnít refer to breast clinic

    I feel silly writing this, but needed some reassurance. My Mum had a sore breast lump. Sheís had lots in the past and has had a few mammograms over the years. She has fibrocystic breasts. She visited the GP on Monday who told her to keep an eye on it and if it got worse/any changes theyíd refer her for a mammogram. Now I know deep down that if they thought this was sinister they wouldnít tell her to just wait, would they? They wouldnít just use a wait and see approach? The Dr she saw is one she has seen in the past and so knows her medical history which reassures me too as theyíre aware of whatís normal for her. Thanks in advance for any replies!

    My mom has the same issues with the fibrous breasts. And the answer is no - if they felt something suspicious or out of the ordinary, they would have sent her for a mammogram right away.

    Doctors don't mess around when it comes to breast lumps. If they have the slightest suspicion that it could possibly be sinister then they will refer. Telling someone to keep an eye on it is a very general and normal thing for a doctor to say.
    It's a good sign that your mum wasn't referred for a mammogram. The doctor obviously isn't worried that there is anything bad going on.
    I hope she feels better soon xx
