When to see doctor
At what stage do you go to the doctor for ‘different’ sensations? I don’t want to be paranoid but I also don’t want to seem a hypochondriac. I am loathe to ask my BC nurse anything as she just tells me, “that is normal. You have to stop worrying’ How do I know what is normal. I have never had BC before. I have a lump under my arm which I have ignored for three weeks. Today I was booked in to see the Lymph Physio but the hospital stuffed up my appointment (as usual) so she had to rebook me for two weeks away. Fortunately, she asked me if I had any concerns and so I was able to explain the issue and she was able to quickly check it and then reassure me that it was scar tissue. Our bodies are so different to what we know as normal so how do we know? Google is too scary. I am determined to not panic every time something physically uncomfortable happens, but how long do I leave it before I seek medical reassurance? How do you decide?
