Worried and can’t sleep

Last reply: 1 year ago

I 35, recently I noticed that there was a change in the shape of my right breast. Underneath there is a slight indent and the skin is a slightly different colour. Went to GP and they have referred me to the systematic breast clinic. I can’t stop stressing and googling doesn’t help but I can’t seam to not look up stuff. The waiting for an appointment is driving me crazy and I’m not really sleeping. Has anyone any tips on how to take your mind off of thinking about worst case scenarios?
