Okay sorry to keep going on about this, but I just had my doctor appt today. He said the pain is probably a soft tissue "injury" from the mammogram and that it can take a couple months to get better. It's been a month already. But he said if it doesn't get better in a month we can re-evaluate then (based on my history).
THE THING IS... like an idiot, I totally forgot to tell him that I think it's actually gotten a bit worse since it's been there, not better. And it's been a month. And the fact that he said we may re-evaluate in a month if it's not better is really scaring me since it hasn't shown any signs of getting better, only worse (it's still very mild pain though, like a 1 on 1-10 scale).
AAANNDD, the other day I developed a rash on the front of that breast. It's nowhere near the pain area (which is slightly above the breast), and looks a lot like a heat rash you get when you sweat but it wasn't in the fold of the skin - actually on the front which seems odd. Hydrocortisone seemed to help a bit but then the skin of my nipple started getting dry and scaly looking, and the skin was flaking off! Maybe it had to do with the rash drying out and healing? I don't know, but it freaked me out. And now I have a tiny white spot under the skin of my nipple in an entirely DIFFERENT area. I'm sure it wasn't there before, and it's not raised - it's really under the skin.
This is throwing me into a tizzy. Someone please tell me if I'm stringing a bunch of unrelated things together or if I should get a second opinion. Dreadful, terrible things keep running through my mind.
