Re: Question on self breast exam
my gyno has told me they wont always feel the same...but they shouldnt feel so different that its really noticeable. if that makes sense...i have noticed on my left breast also..ever since my early teen years (im 19 now) i have had a weird lumpish spot...and sometimes it hurts and throbs and my gyno swears to me that its normal...and that if it was something serious it would be painless (is this true anyone? i have heard to get a 2nd opinion about that) so then that helps ease my mind...but its been bothering me more lately and i feel i should get re-checked. from my personal beast exam both of mine seem to feel the same except for the lumpish spot i described and ive had it for a while too. so i guess im in the same boat.
and in response to your last question..how do they know whats normal. i personally think they just know what normal breasts should feel like, thats what they have learned in medical school. if they feel something out of the ordinary...they should alert you about it...or if you are getting checked out and you feel something is wrong let them know im sure they will feel around and tell you.
also i just wanted to ask i hope i dont sound rude..if you have felt the difference in your breasts for quite sometime..what has taken you so long to ask questions?
It never hurts to smile :-D
