Think Diddle nailed it with her advice. You kno its there touch it once more then promise urself u will get on with ur weekend and wont touch it again. Book an appointment with ur GP and leave it to the xperts to examine diagnose and perscribe any neccesary treatments. Hopefully it will b something and nothing :-) take care try not to worry(i kno i kno easier said than done for most women) il say a wee prayer for ya x x

Hi

I had a similar thing happen to me a couple of years ago. I found a pea size lump behind my nipple. I made an app with my gp and she checked it out. She thought it was glandular tissue that was linked to my hormones and said to go back after my next period if it was still there. It was , but it was smaller. After 2 months it had gone. It really is probably nothing but I would still go see your gp, to put your mind at rest if nothing else. I can understand how nervous you must be feeling though. I really hope you get this sorted and are fine.

Love and gentle cuddles

Hello Debs, it's always best to check any lump out just to make sure and of course to reassure yourself as it can be a very worrying time. I think most people have had various lumps and bumps checked out at some time or other in their lives, it's not unusual. Most tend to be cysts, scar tissue, fatty lumps etc.

I hope your visit to the Doctors goes well for you, take care. :)

Hi there ,I have to agree with everyone,I have had a lump that turned out not to be so good,but I have also had lumps that I have had checked and as LibbyDe says,they have just been cysts.

So I agree with everyone,try not to worry,but please get it checked by your doc,if they are not sure,you can see a specialist within 2 weeks just to double check,I have urgent checks for lumps that also turned out ,just to be cysts,take care,hope all goes well Sandy.
