A mammogram is the "gold standard" screening test for breast cancer. It's well established that yearly 'grams will DX cancers well before they are palpable, leading to earlier diagnoses and saved lives. All experts agree to begin yearly mammograms by age 50; many (including myself) believe the pro's outweigh the con's to begin at 40. Regrettably, less than half of all women ...Read more
I have bumps on my breast . I am afraid this might be cancer . I am 17 yrs old and virgin . Does Montgomery glands occur all the times? In teens?
Depends on location.: Montgomery glands are located around the nipple in the areola. Bumps on the skin of the breast might be cysts in the dermal layer. If the lumps are deeper, they could be "fibrocystic change", which tends to be painful with the menstrual cycle. It's best to be seen by your doctor to be sure. But chances are it's NOT cancer, so you don't have to be scared or worried right now. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Less Likely: I think you should speak to your MOm right away and let her know what is happening to you.

Please see your doctor right away and also speak to your Mom. ...Read more

Breast nodule: You will probably need at least a breast sonogram to further evaluate the nodule. Based on the mammographic/sonographic features, the radiologist will assess the probability that it could be cancer, and this will determine whether short interval follow up or biopsy is appropriate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: M: most lumps in the breast are actually not cancerous, but i definitely advise that you call this to your doctor's attention so that appropriate testing can be done. You will need at least a sonogram and mammogram to check out the lump areas. If you have many lumps, that is also a good sign that it is likely not cancer. ...Read more

If my breasts naturally feel lumpy and bumpy all over, how am I supposed to tell what would be breast cancer? 33 yrs old so no yearly mammograms yet.

I have rather big lumps in both of my breasts. I've had them since I was a teenager, so I never thought anything about them. Is that normal?
The areola on my right breast is puffy. It is not sore and I can not feel any lumps. I am 50 years old and in perimenopause. I had a mammogram 5 month?
Not to ignore: B"sd not to be ignored - even if you had your mammogram last week. With a negative mammogram a cancer is unlikely but any change in the breast as you described should be brought to medical attention. It is not an emergency, so you could wait a week and if it goes away should probably just maintain routine breast health surveillance. ...Read more
