Wondering if any other gransnetters have had similar symptoms of breast tenderness with the menopause? Last year I went to the breast clinic because of lumps that just turned out to be cysts, so I don’t want to work myself into a lather if it is nothing to worry about again.
Yes - but only at certain times, so as it’s not all the time I haven’t worried about it. It’s to do with hormone levels in my case I think.
Don’t work yourself into a lather but nothing wrong with getting yourself checked out about any concerns. I had a painful lump a few years ago- they couldn’t see anything and told me to cut out coffee! (I didn’t have much anyway). I felt a bit silly, but was better than worrying all the time.
This is heartening, thank you both for your quick replies late on a Sunday. They are very tender, a man elbowed me by accident on the train to London on Friday and my eyes smarted. I’m very aware of them and sleeping is uncomfortable. I drink an awful lot of coffee, I will try cut down, thank you for the tip Nezumi. I’ll call and book with the Gp tomorrow but will try not to panic. I decided not to google as I really work myself up worrying and ask on here instead.
