I have a lump that is growing in size, quite painful to touch and is situated just off to the side of my breast bone. Can you please advise whose advice I need to seek? Do I need to go to the GP first or is there a more direct route?
If the lump is painful and growing you do need to see your GP as this will need to be addressed and can have numerous causes from infection to inflammation and treatment will depend on cause. If you have a private health policy this will usually require a GP referral to a specialist once diagnosis has been determined.
