Thanks for posting.
It’s understandable you are concerned about the pain and swelling you have experienced for the last six weeks, especially as you mom died from breast cancer.
I see you had a mammogram in October but unsure if this was though the routine screening or through the breast clinic as a result of a referral from your GP. Do return to your GP as soon as you can to explain your concerns. They may suggest a referral to the breast clinic if this hasn’t been done or they may recommend you see a different type of specialist if they are unable to diagnose what is causing your symptoms.
Sometimes other conditions can cause symptoms like this, such as cardiac problems so it would be important to see a doctor without delay.
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.
