Hi everyone, not new to HealthUnlocked but new to this page. I’m 38 (no kids) and over the weekend I have experienced 3-4 bouts of quite sharp, throbbing breast pain, just on the right side, behind the nipple. I have given myself a thorough going over & can’t feel any lumps or bumps but I’ve NEVER had any kind of breast pain ever in my life, so don’t think it could be chalked up to hormones or ‘my cycle’. A close friend of mine had breast cancer & has urged me to speak to my GP but I’m wondering whether I should wait & see how things pan out? Any thoughts gratefully received and a warm thank you in advance.
P.s I don’t know if it’s at all relevant, by a little under 5 years ago I had two operations 6 weeks apart to remove/treat a borderline ovarian tumour. I was staged 1a & surgery alone thankfully resolved things. I had my right ovary and fallopian tube removed as ‘fertility saving’ surgery was recommended over a full hysterectomy, due to my age at the time. I have had clear scans every year since & am due to be ‘signed off’ this summer by my Gynae Onc 🙏🏻
