First scared of a blood clot, now worried about breast cancer?
« on: January 22, 2014, 01:18:25 PM »
Hi there,
So 2 weeks ago I was concerned about a blood clot. I was on BC with some breathing troubles and leg pain- it turned out to just be anxiety.

A few months ago I noticed my right breast felt thicker. I just stopped breast feeding a year ago, and so I have been trying to adjust to my breasts again as they feel different.  I left it thinking it would go away. Well just this past week I have been having pain in only one breast. It feels hard and like a few small lumps.

In October I had a breast exam done by a doctor and he said things seem fine. By it wasn't until after that I noticed my right breast felt different.  My  period is he shortly, should I wait and re-evaluate? How much should I be worried? I have NO history of breast cancer in my family, just had bloodwork completed to get lie insurance which came back clear and my bloodwork from the hospital showed an elevated d diamer (clotting) which I have read can be present when there is cancer (however I am thinking it was the birth control that was responsible).

I don't want to go to my doctor again. I was there just 2 weeks  ago, and hVe been there every week  for the last 6 months!! At the same time I am 27 and just want to make sure I don't ignore anything important.

There always seems to be something. Why can't I shake these fears? Why can't I stop finding symptoms? I just want to live y life without the fear I'm ignoring something life threatening. I also want I get pregnant again in less than a year and I want to be healthy for it!

Oh sure. And as I finish this there is a commercial about breast cancer.

Some women here can give you better answer but if you had ultrasound/mammography in October there is no need to go now.

and hVe been there every week  for the last 6 months!!

This should be your answer if it's anxiety or something serious.

Thank you for your quick response hypo!

Sorry I meant I have been every month, not every week! My brain is on the fritz. I didn't have a mammogram but just a hand examination.

The thickness and soreness upsets me. I just know my doctor is going to be unimpressed if I am there again.

My mom was diagnosed last year with breast cancer...usually the lump is the first thing women notice or they don't notice anything. My mother found it on regular yearly screening.

I am sure it's anxiety in your case, and no history of BC in your family + your age strongly point to that.
