Referral to Breast Clinic
I felt an unusual burning sensation in my left breast last week and upon inspection, felt what I thought to be a pea like lump. I immediately made an appointment with my doctor.
When she examined me, she discovered something separate to my pea like lump deep in the flesh and said she found what she described as a bump rather than a lump there that was not on the right breast. She did not appear worried at all but said she would make the referral regardless.
I got a call from the breast clinic the following day to say that I had been classified as urgent and would be seen in the next two weeks. I'm glad to be seen quickly, however, I'm worried now as the doctor did not appear concerned in the slightest but the consultant has deemed me urgent.
I suppose I'm just looking for any sort of reassurance or information as to what is deemed urgent and why it appears to differ to the impression my GP gave. I'm a 38 year old btw.
Many thanks for taking the time to answer,
