Hi, I’m a 30 year old woman who is 15 weeks pregnant. I attended my GP surgery today because of a lump/swelling in my left underarm. I couldn’t feel the lump but knew it felt generally swollen. After the nurse did some feeling around, she called in the GP. They said there was something there that was a bit deep so they’ve made an urgent referral to the breast clinic. I couldn’t have asked for any more from them but it took my by surprise. I’ve had lumpy underarms before and they’ve either gone, swapped armpits or needed antibiotics to clear up. I waited a couple of weeks as I genuinely thought that it was just one that would go. I feel so worried. They did say they are probably being over cautious but I can’t help but worry. Then I feel guilty for worrying and getting so upset because of my baby. I had full bloods taken about 8 weeks ago and they were fine and didn’t flag anything. I just can’t seem to settle as much as I try.
