I am experience bleeding from lumps on and under my left…

Customer Question
I am experience bleeding...

I am experience bleeding from lumps on and under my left breast. I've had cancer in this breast before. This episode started about 2 to 3 weeks ago, but I had a scheduled family visit involving travel that I went ahead with before addressing the problem, which I now, of course, regret. I also am allergic to adhesives of certain types so finding a way to fasten bandages over the area has been a problem. I moved to Denver CO in April of this year and do not yet have established medical relationships. I do have an appointment with an oncologist on 8/10, scheduled about 5 weeks ago, but I'm not sure if I should wait another week.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

Yes

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have a history of cancer of various types dating back to 2000. I also had an ileostomy in 2014 after colon cancer treatment so I have a stoma on the right lower abdomen - this causes me no issues at all. And the last few days my right arm seems numb to me along the outside.

If you have started bleeding from the mentioned lumps then i would recommend you to seek urgent care and get it examined thoroughly and investigated for recurring breast cancer. You should not waste time and should address the problem right away. Atleast you should get treatment for the bleeding at the moment on urgent basis.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
