i never realised the itchyness which may have been there for quite sometime until 3 mnths bak when it was difficult to control…but there was always tenderness on my left breast…i used to think that its coz of my polycystic ovarian disease,so i even got it checked by my gynaecologist…she said its fine nothing… but now i feel that my left breast is heavier than my right and when i stretch my arms above my head i feel slight pain close to my armpit on the breast…i tried doing a self breast check,i feel some sort of hard tissue on the left side of my left breast…
Ash, if you feel a lump, keep your eye on it. If it’s still there in a month, report it to your doctor, OK? Anytime you discover a new lump that doesn’t go away on its own, it’s considered a breast change, and should be checked by a doctor.
You may be experiencing fibrocystic change, which is common in women your age and can produce the symptoms you describe. It’s basically a harmless condition, but can be painful. And, since you describe a thickness near your armpit, you might also find this article on armpit lumps helpful.
Good luck - I hope this resolves itself on its own soon. PJH
