Eliza, So sorry you are going through this worrying time. Glad you found this site. It's a God send whilst you wait.
There is not much to say at this point except.
1- You are absolutely doing the right thing calling your doc in the morning. ANY changes have to be investigsted. You are doing exactly the right thing, not to ignore it, and stay worried any longer.
2-If it is BC, it's always good to find out early. If it isn't BC and you know the majority of breast issues are not BC, then there is no sense in prolonging your worry for nothing, as even the stress coming from your worry is not good for your body.
So, Yes daaling, you are being a sensible, pro active, inteligant women, so don't let anyone "fob you off" until you are satisfied that this has been correctly and thouroughly checked out; By that I mean, mamo and ultra sound as a minimum from a specialized centre for bc, so that the people looking at the mamo or performing the ultrasound are experts.
The majority of investigations will reveal B9 conditions of the breast, however, that is no reason to not fully investigate breast changes. You know your body, you've had 4 kiddos, you go get that peace of mind back. And take care,
Wishing you all the best, you are doing the right thing. there is no point in guessing about things tonight, no crystal ball here, but making that call and following through is indeed, the best thing you can do for you.
Keep poping into BCO and posting as much as you need through the waiting, you won't be alone here. Lots of support from lots of great ladies and lots of people in very similar position.
All my best, hug.
