In brief: Enlarging lump

Go back to your doctor to get re evaluated.
If you feel like you have an enlarging lump, it needs to be addressed despite what the mammo/physical exam showed 7 months ago.

In brief: Ultrasound

The best test for a palpable mass in the breast is an ultrasound.
Even if the mammogram is negative. Hope this helps.

In brief: Plz C Breast Surgeon

While a normal mammogram is reassuring, as many as 10% of cancers will not be seen by mammography.
Therefore, if you have a palpable lump, you should be seen by a breast surgeon. Using a combination of physical examination, ultrasound, +/- biopsy, they will get to the bottom of this. Don't delay!
