Anybody had similar
New here so a little background first. I am female 62 with a family history of breast cancer and other cancers, i myself had cervical cancer at the age of 27. Hysterectomy followed later by a double oophorectomy. HRT in the past. Diagnosed with a fibroadenoma of the Right breast aged 30. I do have quite lumpy boobs anyway so not altogether vigilant on self examination. Last Mammogram in 2019.
So i began to feel like my right breast was a little hardened when i carried things, hugged the hubby ect. I took no notice until i went on holiday recently and tried to lie on my front and found it to be uncomfortable and hard and swollen. I also started to get a dragging feeling with the odd sharp stabbing pain. This prompted me to examine myself. I have 2 tender areas one at 4oclock(if that makes any sense) and the other where the fibroadenoma lives which is at 12 o'clock. Now during this examine i found this breast a lot more lumpy in the 12 o'clock area with an extension of lumpy tissue going towards my shoulder on the right upper quadrant. One defined area that does not move and appears to almost be next to the fibroadenoma.. I have looked in the mirror and the right boob appears to be "smaller" with a slight misshape/swelling on the side. I have seen my GP who has referred me to the fast track breast unit so within 2 wks hopefully.
Anybody out there with a similar story/history and what was the outcome?
Thank you for any help or advice
