It sounds: like you had a breast ultrasound as well. Obviously limited info and incomplete description, but based on those descriptors, it is probably a BIRADS category 3 lesion(98% or greater chance of being benign). Most commonly, a mass with this description is a benign fibroadenoma.

A 33-year-old member asked:

Is it ok to get a chest X-ray in the first trimester?

Dr. Carolyn Thompson

If necessary: Any type of test that exposes you to radiation (x-ray, cat scan) should generally be avoided in pregnancy. If such a test is medically necessary, the abdomen should be shielded with a lead apron to prevent exposure to the baby.
Dr. Christopher Powers
Obstetrics and Gynecology 23 years experience
In the first trimester, the uterus is still a pelvic organ, i.e., it still hasn't risen much above the pubic bone. Agree with adequate shielding, a chest xray will be no problem.

A 28-year-old member asked:

Will I be able to breastfeed if I have had a breast reduction?

5 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Benner
Obstetrics and Gynecology 33 years experience
No: Most women who have had breast reductions will find it difficult to nurse, and some may find it impossible. There's no harm in trying but it is important to be realistic. The operation relocates the nipple and disrupts the nerves that signal the brain to produce and release breast milk when the baby sucks. Sometimes there is adequate nerve function and with persistence nursing can succeed.
A member asked:

Chronic wind causing pain in chest and down both arms.?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Doctor can evaluate: Is chronic wind the stomach gas & bloating, with a need to burp? Or, is chronic wind the intestinal gas, with a need to pass gas via the anus (fart)? Stomach gas and heartburn (reflux) can cause chest pains. Chest pains can also be spasms in the esophagus or angina pain (as in heart attack pain). The aorta is also in the chest. Pains going down the arms can also be effects on spinal cord nerves.

Varies: It varies with age, health, surrounding, and other factors. Very young children may heal a fracture in this little and 3- 4 weeks, while adults, average six weeks, with geriatrics eight weeks and longer.Healing is quicker with proper alignment and immobilization. Surrounding soft tissue damage and preexisting health issues often retard the healing process.
