...but my left breast hurts and has an area of thickening in it that's pretty noticeable.
I'm not panicking - yet, anyway. I had a lump develop in the same breast after the car accident; it was about the size of a hen's egg and turned out to be fat necrosis. For those of you who aren't medically-minded, I'll explain: injury to the breast can cause the body to create firm scar tissue when it repairs the damage. My seatbelt caused a lump of breast tissue to be sheared off, and my body created scar tissue when it tried to repair the damage. It didn't look normal on mammogram imaging so I had a surgery to remove it and have it biopsied. The peace of mind that came from that was wonderful.
Urbaner was gone for the whole thing. It only took 2 weeks from the initial appointment to the surgery, but it seemed like forever....and I think part of that was because I was alone and didn't have anyone to physically lean on. This time isn't going to be any different; Urbaner is leaving today. Apparently my ta-ta's like to act up whenever he's gone.
I don't know whether I should make an appointment with my doctor in the next couple of days to get it checked out, or whether I should wait for a week or so to see what happens with it. I don't want to make a fuss about nothing, but I also want to have some peace of mind.
For once, I really don't know what to do.
