Breast Cancer ??

Posted by alykat11 @alykat11, Jun 20 7:16pm

Hey so I recently found a lump in one of my breasts. It started with my nipple getting sore and it looks like my nipple got a little burned. Since it hurt I decided to palpate it and I feel like a small tiny bump. I wanted to know what everyone else has experienced and if I should be freaking out.

This can be a scary find, but do not panic. Not all lumps are cancer, BUT you need to have it check out. Make an appointment with your primary provider to check out. First step will be a breast exam and mammogram. Then you will know for sure.

Yes, please get it checked out, and it is very frightening. In 2019 while recovering from a broken ankle I discovered a lump and it seemed to get smaller and almost disappear and since I had a mammogram only months before I was not off the charts with anxiety over it. I put off going in to have it checked and it was cancer and grew unusually fast. Had I gone in sooner I wouldn't have had such a difficult time. Best wishes and I pray for a negative result.

Freaking out, probably won't help, but get in to see your doctor ASAP.

Hi @alykat11, how are you doing today? Did you make an appointment to talk to your doctor about the lump you found?
