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.
