I am really scared. (breast problem)
For about the last week, my nipples and areola have been hurting. I only notice when I take my bra off and something else, like my hand or a t-shirt, touches them. I cease to notice once I have been wearing my t-shirt for a few minutes, but if I touch them, they hurt.
Last night I googled this symptom and once I eliminated the breastfeeding and pregnancy pages, there were pages and pages of breast cancer info, and nothing else that I saw.
I am 37. My aunt had BC when she was only a couple of years older than me. I am terrified. What I have not told anyone is that I have dreamed about breast cancer a couple of times in the last two months or so. I kept doing self-breast exams, just in case, and paying attention but nothing came up until this last week. I have a doctor appt. today at noon.
My knees and hands are shaking.
