User :   Hi, for a few months I have noticed I have a lump in each breast, my right much bigger than my left. I have been to the doctor and am getting referred to breast clinic, but on and off this past couple of wks I keep getting a tingling sensation from the top of my right breast to under my armpit down to my hand, I have had it since Saturday and it still hasn't gone away, could this be connected to my breast lump?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi :)
Doctor :   What is your age?
Doctor :   marital status?
User :   I am nearly 28
User :   Mum of 2 classed as single but with some1
Doctor :   What is the size of the lump you noticed?
Doctor :   Did the doctor check for it before referring?
User :   I have 1 on my right breast which is about the size of a golf ball the 1 on the left isn't as big
User :   Yes he made me lay down so he could feel the lumps
Doctor :   If the lumps are large enough they can press on the nerves and cause pain
Doctor :   but sometimes the pain can be very non specific not related to lump
Doctor :   So it is difficult to judge without a physical examination
User :   The only reason I wasn't sure whether to contact doctor again is just because I have been a few times recently and didn't know if it was important, would they do something sooner by knowing this? My arm feels weeker after this wkend so could the doc stop it?
Doctor :   You can wait till you get to a breast clinic
Doctor :   as there is no medicines that can particularly help you from this
User :   It could b another 2 months b4 I get to breast clinic, what if the tingling doesn't go away?
Doctor :   Ok, if it bothers and affects your daily life, then please seek the same doctor's help
Doctor :   for medicines
User :   Ok thank u :)
Doctor :   Did you follow ?

Doctor :   Pleasure here
