I'm going for my first biopsy tomorrow morning and and pretty scared.
I found a "lump" in both breasts only two weeks ago. My doctor found one area of thickened breast tissue in my right breast, and three In my left.
My doctor was obviously concerned, so sent me to the breast clinic asap.
I'm worried, as I get rib pain, on my left side, and also feel some aches in my bones.
I'm panicking, as the areas of thickening are quite large, to feel at least, and my left breast causes me quite a lot of pain.
Not all the time, but last night, I found it hard to sleep with the pain, and it hurts when hugging or even just sitting/lying down (again, not around the clock).
Should I be concerned about this? Or are all these symptoms unconnected?
I'm 36, no known history of breast cancer in my family (as of yet). I think this thickened tissue could have been there for some time, as I've recently lost weight.. about two stone since March (my mom passed away in early March).
Another symptom I'm having is that my hands and feet go numb, very easily.. again, I'm not sure if any of these things are connected or not, but i may as well document them here, so I can refer to them.
Any advice or support welcome. Thanks.
