Hi Tisa 85]
Thanks for your post.
It’s natural to feel worried when you notice something unusual for you. It’s good to hear you’ve made an appointment to see your GP to get this checked out.
If your GP is unsure about what may be causing this lump, s/he may refer you to a breast clinic. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have breast cancer, just that further tests are needed to find out what’s going on.
If this happens, you can read more about what to expect at this appointment here.
You mention it’s a bit sore and getting bigger. If you’re concerned it may be a breast abscess that’s become infected, do speak with your GP surgery. It may be they can offer you an earlier appointment.
Alternatively, you can search the NHS choices website for your nearest walk-in centre.
Do call our free, confidential Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. The number is 0808 800 6000.
Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.
