Lump Breast Checked
Probably not: The sooner you can get in the better, but chances are your breast lump has been there for years. If it is growing quickly, causing pain, or if you have swelling in the lymph nodes under your arm, you should be seen right away.. Most breast lumps are benign (not cancer), so odds are that waiting 2 months will be ok. I'm curious why you have to wait for 2 months though! ...Read more

You need to be: re-evaluated by your physician. You should check the report of the mammogram, don't assume anything. Incidentally, federal MQSA regulations require that a patient be notified, in writing, of mammo results within 30 days. If you didn't get a letter, your facility may not be in compliance with the law. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes, please: It would be prudent to get it checked out, even though the risk of anything serious is very remote. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine ...Read more

As : As breast pain can be a sign of pregnancy, please take a test if you have any suspicious that you may be pregnant. Check your breast and be sure you don't see any redness or areas that appear abnormal. Please see your doctor and have this evaluated. Breast pain can occur from hormonal imbalance for no other reason, but please get this checked out by your doctor.

If : If you ask this question to 10 different people you will probably get 10 different responses. I recommend that you empower yourself to control that which you can control, and not focus on that which you cannot control. You cannot decided whether or not you develop breast cancer, but unlike many other cancers, you can decide how to fight breast cancer. You have many tools that you can use to fight it. The first one you are already familiar with - the self breast exam. Next you should have a primary care provider who can exam the lump and give you their opinion and recommendations. Then there is mammography, breast ultrasound, and even breast MRI that will allow detection of extremely small cancers. There are excellent surgical treatments, radiation, and chemotherapy treatments. If the lump does turn out to be cancer, the sooner you do something about it the more control you have over your prognosis. Early on you have many options, but if you wait long enough those options will disappear. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
