I'm pregnant and have a soft lump in my breast. Us reported normal tissue.  Should i see a b surgeon too?  It makes me nervous. Do many women get this

Many do get those: At 31, breast cancer is not very common and ultrasound finding =normal , it is highly unlikely the lump is cancer. If the lump feels a bit squishy, it is probably a "clogged milk gland" which is very common. It is anxiety-provoking for a lady to feel a lump in her breast, but i would not worry too much in your case--your doc and ultrasound said so. Congrats on the pregnancy and good luck. ...Read more

I have lump between my breasts and it has grown bigger but does not go. What is it?

A lump: A lump between your breasts but not in the breast itself that doesn't go away could be a fibroma or a lipoma, an inclusion cyst, or an abcess. It is extremely unlikely to be a malignancy. If it is bothering you, an exam would be necessary to say for sure what it is but it should be fairly easy to remove and most likely could be done in the doctor's office if it is small. Hope this helps. ...Read more
