You should really go and get them checked. I’ve always declined my smear tests, I just don’t feel comfortable with it at all but I know maybe one day I should just take a deep breath and do it.

Call your GP or call 111 if it feels more urgent than having to wait. I know it’s scary, I know if there is anything you might not be ready to hear it but then on the other side it could be perfectly fine and nothing major is wrong at all.

It’s always best to act quickly when you actually have symptoms of anything.

How long have you had the implant?

im thinking x ignore the pain and then it will not be anything serious ,going to the doctors could be opening a can of worms and cause me to have something x

I do the same thing, keep putting something off thinking it will get better. BUT I am still going to tell you to just go, because if you go asap, here are the two options: 1). There is nothing, relieving your anxieties about the situation much sooner. Or 2) They find something, which means it can get looked at/treated straight away which is always better than leaving anything too late, big or small! :hug: Please keep us updated xx

You have implants in your breasts or just a birth control implant?
As a cancer survivor, go get an exam, rule out an infection, or abscess first. Get checked for lumps, run blood tests and get screened for breast cancer just to be safe and rule it out.
