I found a small lump in my left breast, how can I tell if it is just normal breast tissue?

Lumps that "count" tend to be 3-dimensionally round rather than pencil- or pancake-shaped and are harder than normal rubbery breast tissue. When finding a new lump, it is best to see your dr.;it may be wise to get a mammogram, ultrasound, or even a biopsy, depending on their findings. ...Read more

Is it possible that a painful breast lump just be normal breast tissue?

Is it possible that a painful breast lump just be normal breast tissue?

See a Doctor: Any new lump in the breast should be a cause for concern, best handled by seeing your gyne or primary care doctor. While most cancers are not painful, it is not a reliable finding. Hopefully, your doctor will be able to alleviate your concern or refer you to a breast center/surgeon for definitive evaluation. I hope its a false alarm--good luck. ...Read more

Does vacuum assisted breast biopsy cause cancer from thre trauma? Biopsy was negative (normal breast tissue)

Nope: Congrats on the benign results! we have been performing core biopsies for over 30 years and have not found any association between benign biopsies and cancer development. Moreover, surgical biopsies are more "traumatic"--we've been doing those for 100+ years without any increased cancer risk. ...Read more

I have been having twinges in my left breast. Have had mammo, ultrasound & mri. All normal. Breast tissue dense. Concerned about breast cancer. What followup do you recommend? Tests were done last August.

I have been having twinges in my left breast.  Have had mammo, ultrasound & mri.  All normal.  Breast tissue dense.  Concerned about breast cancer.  What followup do you recommend?  Tests were done last August.

Twinges: First it is great news that all of the testing has been normal to this point. I know it is frustrating not having an answer about the cause of the twinges. I would imagine repeating the mammogram in 3-6 months would be reasonable. If there is an early breast cancer (which there doesn't seem to be) you would be catching it early, when it's very treatable. Would need more info about twinges... ...Read more
