During a segment on The Project about how women in the US who have received their Covid vaccines rushing to get mammograms after many thought their breasts had grown due to swollen lymph nodes, Carrie Bickmore revealed she was also a bit nervous after finding a lump soon after receiving her jab.
Carrie revealed she'd found a small but harmless lump on her breast after getting her Pfizer jab.
"Not just women, I'm afraid," Peter Hellier joked.
"This is exactly what happened," Carrie said. "And I will admit I clicked on the clickbait today because mine didn't go up a size, but I was thinking when I was in the shower, after I got my Pfizer, I noticed a lump, and I thought that's weird, I will keep an eye on that."
"I texted a girlfriend who had the jab around the same time as me the next day and asked how she was feeling, she said 'fine, but my lymph nodes are up under my arms' and I was like 'of course, that's what it is!'"
Steve Price then shared his own reaction to his vaccine, saying, "You get bigger boobs and I get bad dreams from the second jab of AstraZeneca."
"That was the side effect I had.
Pete then asked Steve if his dreams were about bigger boobs, to which he laughed, "Maybe!"
"He's not disclosing," Waleed Aly joked.
The Australian Department of Health states enlarged lymph nodes are a side effect of the Covid vaccine, but a less common one and not anything to worry about.
On the website they explain, "These side effects are usually mild and usually go away within one or two days. Some recipients will experience more significant flu-like symptoms from this vaccination compared to other common vaccinations and may require time away from normal activities.
"These symptoms may occur after either dose but are more common after the second dose."
If a lump hasn't gone away after a few days after receiving the vaccine, speak with your doctor.
