About 3 weeks ago I was feeling my breasts and noticed I could feel an indentation and also a somewhat lump(?) in my left breast. Of course, I panicked like crazy and scheduled an emergency appointment with my GP. She believed it to be normal but scheduled me in for a routine ultrasound anyway. Week later, had it, found out there was nothing to worry about and my axillae were normal.
SINCE finding out the lump and indentation in my breast, I have become 3409359% more paranoid about my health and continue to self-diagnose myself with anything that goes on in my body.
Right now, it's about melanoma... I have A LOT of moles-- about 9 on my face and around 10 on each arm. I have moles that are raised and one on my ear that is kind of big, about 2-3mm. They are all symmetrical, though. Also, I believe that 0 of these moles have changed as I have had them since I was a child, but I can't be too sure.
I am 21 years old and have been looking up statistics and apparently the trend increases around the 20-24 year mark!
I am so unbelievably scared. I haven't been able to get back to sleep and I'm planning to schedule another emergency appointment today to put my mind at rest.
