First of all, I am making an appointment with my GP first thing on Monday and have already called a health hotline and spoken to a nurse so I am not looking for medical advice, just wondering if anyone else has dealt with this.
This post is aimed towards the larger ladies with big breasts, like myself. Yesterday I found a lump in my upper right breast. It is tender and my entire chest (above my breast and above the lump) is a little bit sore. I also have a lymph node in my right armpit that seems to be swollen. There are a few things this could be but besides breast cancer the one I think it sounds most like is fat necrosis.
My question is this... have any of you had fat necrosis of the breast?
It is typically caused by surgery or injury. I always sleep on my side with my arm superman'd out and I tend to rest my body weight on my right breast when I sleep. Sometimes I get bruises at the top of my breast but never really thought anything of it because it is something that happens fairly recently, always in the same spot.
Where the bruising occurs, I now have a lump. There is some discoloration but nothing too crazy. It is tender but not outright painful unless prodded. I obviously won't feel any better until I get this diagnosed but I was just wondering if any one else has experienced either bruising on your breasts from side or stomach sleeping or fat necrosis.
I apologize if there is a better section for this post.
