Recurrent pain

Started by Anonymous on 06 January 2017 at 23:33

Hi, I have a worry about an ongoing pain I have in my right breast. I've had this fairly consistently for a few months but it comes and goes, if that makes sense. At times it travels to my underarm and round to my shoulder blade but it's becoming a real issue. I've made an appointment to see the gp. I'm 39 and have three kids. I'm so worried that it could cancer. On the same breast, I feel like I see an orange peel type surface on the underside below the nipple - could this just be due to breastfeeding? I spoke with the go before about some of these symptoms but was breastfeeding at the time but I've stopped for over a year and the symptoms continue. Thanks
