Awaiting appointment.

Last reply: 2 months ago

Hello,
I went to my GP with a small lump in my right breast and a referral was sent to the Mater Hospital clinic for review. I have been waiting 10 weeks now for an appointment and told there are delays because of Covid19. In the mean time a larger lump has developed in my left breast and I have noticed my breast is larger and feels heavy. I cannot lie on my front due to pain in both breasts. I am wondering if I should revisit my GP or continue to wait for an appointment? Also, during the clinic visit will both breast be reviewed or just the one on the referral?
Kind regards.

Hi VC, I would definitely ring gp. There's nothing as bad as waiting as you imagine the worst. Good luck
