Possibly cyst: If you had some diagnostic imaging done of that breast and it was found to be a cyst it should be of no concern however if it is bothersome it can be aspirated or removed by a surgeon.

See your doctor: This can't be answered unless you are sitting in front of a doctor who can examine you. You probably also need a ultrasound as well. See you doctor or a breast specialist to answer the question.

33 years old clear mammo 4 months ago, recently found pea sized lump in breast and chest pain. Can mammo be wrong?

Not wrong, not seen: Not every tissue type can be seen on mammography. Up to 10% of cancers may not be seen on mammo and not seen on ultrasound. In this 10%, it used to mean we went right to excisional biopsy. Now, if indicated, you can do an MRI first. Talk to your doctor.

Lump in breast previously diagnosis as galactocele couldn't be found on mammogram or breast u/s. It is felt by me and dr. Stayed same size past 5 yrs. Do MRI?

A lump: That has been stable for 5 years and is not visible on mammogram and sonogram in someone your age has a very minuscule chance of being malignant. MRI probably not necessary.

What to do if I'm a former breast cancer patient who just found a big lump in breast about size of maybe an avocado pit?

What to do if I'm a former breast cancer patient who just found a big lump in breast about size of maybe an avocado pit?

See your oncologist: Hello- please see your oncologist asap (even if you just did or if you just had a negative mammogram). He/she will examine you and order a follow-up imaging exam to make sure you do not have breast cancer again. There is a good chance this is not breast cancer, but you need to rule it out first. You are very young and need genetic testing if you haven't had it. Your oncologist can do this.

What might a cancerous lump in breast feel like?

Many variations: Please see your doctor. Given your age, breast cancer is extremely unlikely. However, you need to find out what this is. After a complete history and physical, if there is a palpable abnormality, an ultrasound will probably be next, perhaps followed by a mammogram.

How do you treat painful lump in breast?

See your doctor.: The first thing you do is figure out why there is a lump and why it is painful. At 47 you should be having mammograms every year. If you haven't it's past time to start. Your doctor should be able to refer you for biopsy if needed. (based off a thorough history and exam.) once you know what the lump is then you can deal with the pain from it.

How do you treat pain and lump in breast?

Go see your doctor: Any lump in the breast should be examined by your doctor for confirmation. If it is real, a mammography is advised for confirmation. Often a biopsy is needed once a lump is confirmed to be there. Most breast cancer lumps are painless. If it is tender it may not be cancer. Fibrocystic condition of the breast can cause lumpiness and such lumps are often painful. Your doctor can give you medication.

How can I get a second opinion on lump in breast?

C a Breast Surgeon: Although many doctors are knowledgable about breast diseases, a breast surgeon would be able to provide the most comprehensive evaluation of a breast lump; even though we are surgeons, we rarely recommend surgery unless a cancer is diagnosed. Go to www. Breastsurgeons. Org and find a member of the american society of breast surgeons in your area. Good luck!

What do I do for lump in breast after a car wreck?

What do I do for lump in breast after a car wreck?

Wait and watch: You probably have a big hematoma (bruise) where your seatbelt went across your breast. You may not see a bruise, but it can be deep within the breast. It takes time for your body to heal this, so it may be a month or two before you notice it getting better. Use ice packs. If it's getting worse, not better, see a doctor. Rarely the area can keep bleeding inside your breast, requiring surgery.
