Biopsy: We won't know until after the biopsy, if your breast surgeon recommends one. Some things are followed on ultrasound. Please don't hesitate to follow up with your physician, even if anxious and scared, because breast cancer has a much better prognosis these days with better treatments. They may want an ultrasound and an MRI, although all were neg on one patient I am aware of. ...Read more

9dpo breasts heavy and hard not bigger menstrul like cramps everyday at different times no infect no STD is this normal no discharge?

9dpo breasts heavy and hard not bigger menstrul like cramps everyday at different times no infect no STD  is this normal no discharge?

Sorry but: What is 9 dpo? If 9 days past ovulation the u are likely tracking ovulation and your body much more closely. Did they check your bladder for an infection? That can cause cramping. Try 2 aleve (naproxen) 2x per day if not having to void all the time. It helps breast and uterine cramping. That will likely help but i'm not sure that it means anything. Good luck, see doc if worsens. ...Read more
