No good screen: Forgive me if i sound jaded, but this is reality. Money drives even good causes. There's no good way to screen for pancreatic cancer that makes money for any medical technology. The expensive "breast cancer awareness" campaigns appears to me to be paid for mostly by the mammogram machine industry. It's okay with me since it helps de-stigmatize and de-magic the illness for ordinary folks. ...Read more
I've breast implants (12yrs) & notice lumps inner cleavage on 1 breast that disappear when I press firmly during self exam. Rippling or cancer fear??
Probably not cancer: It is reassuring that the lumps disappear with compression. They could easily be droplets of ? silicone from an implant rupture. However, breast tissue does remain in the breast after implants are placed. 33 years of age would be very young to have breast cancer but we all know it does happen. See your doctor for evaluation; appropriate breast imaging will help identify the cause of the lumps. ...Read more
Take a deep breath: Find yourself a good oncologist if you don't have one already and make sure he/she answers your questions to the best of his/her ability.

60yo mom's mammogram found an irregular shaped, enlarged, non-fatty lymph node near breast. Any reason not cancer related? 4 masses in right breast only too

Yes: Breast implants, either saline or silicone, can obscure mammogram images, decreasing the ability of mammograms to reveal breast cancer. Still, studies show that mammograms are an effective way to screen for breast cancer in women with breast implants. If you have breast implants, you can take steps to make your mammogram more successful, such as: Find a facility that sees many women with breast implants. Ask your doctor for a referral to a clinic where radiologists have experience performing and reading mammograms of women with breast implants. , Speak up about your breast implants at your appointment. , If you have noted changes in your breast or if you have concerns, tell your doctor promptly. . There's a slight risk that your breast implants may rupture during a mammogram. But the benefits of mammography in the early detection of breast cancer outweigh this risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Standard treatment: The surgeon is giving you the "best evidence" advice. Without detecting any tumor in the breast, it is safer, less mutilating, less painful, less expensive, and better psychologically to leave the breast in place. Usually the tumor is so tiny that it cannot be found. Often, chemotherapy (to kill any cancer cells elsewhere in the body) and radiation to the breast is done. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
No, fibrocystic breast changes don't increase your risk of breast cancer: Fibrocystic breast changes are common. Women with this noncancerous (benign) condition often have lumpy, nodular breasts and experience breast pain that varies throughout the menstrual cycle. Doctors don't know exactly what causes fibrocystic breast changes, but the condition is likely due to hormone changes during your menstrual cycle that affect breast tissue. Although fibrocystic breast changes don't increase your risk of breast cancer, having fibrocystic breasts may make it more difficult for you to feel a new breast lump or other abnormal change — such as a persistent breast lump that doesn't go away with your next menstrual cycle or thickening or firmness within lumpy breast tissue. It's important to become familiar with how your breasts normally feel so that you'll know when something just isn't right. If you detect something unusual, make an appointment with your doctor to have it evaluated. ...Read more
