So i suffer from anxiety. I have had the month from hell. Diagnosed with IBS, then received a borderline result from a smear now i have a mega sore breast. VERY sore to touch so i thought because i was poking it quite hard to feel any lumps i bruised something. The pain is in my right breast bottom left area. I couldn't bare the thought of leaving it so i went to the hospital where one doc said if my senior doesn't want to see you you can go. He ended up coming in and had a feel and referred me on to a breast specialist as there was some hard swelling in the breast. I asked if i should worry where they both said no and they were being thourough. But i am freaking. My appointment is not until wednesday (hospital was on 5 days ago) and even though i'm 22 and people i've talked to saying it prob fibro tissue i'm still scared. I only have this firm like thing in my breast it's not small and it moves around not fixed. No other signs of cancer or anything. My doctors really didn't explain anything to me now i'm have sleepless nights and i can't leave my breast alone. The other thing to is it seems to get sorer if it is aggravated. My mums mum had breast cancer and i know that fibro cysts run through the family... wtf is it???
