About 2 weeks ago I found a lump in my right breast. I cannot find anything specific about before diagnosis. So my question is, has anybody else been diagnosed with breast cancer been suffering from tiredness before? My appointment at the breast clinic is next Friday. I am in obsessing and know that I am being overly paranoid.
If you're struggling to find what you need, call our Support line on 7 days a week, 8am-8pm. Tiredness fatigue is probably the most common side effect of breast cancer treatment. It's a feeling of having no energy so it's difficult to do simple, everyday things. You may find that rest doesn't make it better. Fatigue can affect the way you think and feel.
The fatigue that comes with cancer, called cancer-related fatigue , is different from the fatigue of daily life. Cancer-related fatigue is not the tired feeling people remember having before they had cancer. It can be hard to think or move. Rest does not make it go away, and just a little activity can be exhausting. For some people, this kind of fatigue causes more distress than pain, nausea, vomiting, or depression.
Fatigue is hard to describe. You feel like you don't have any energy and are tired all the time. But there's not a specific cause, such as doing errands all day, working out, or other exertion.
