DENSE BREASTS/ LUMPS? I HAVE NO CLUE.
I have posted before. Since August I have been having issues with my breasts (both). I am 29 yrs old, family history bc, mom at 44. Last week I went for my 6 month mammo on the right breast ( prior mammo saw some calcifications). all is fine. Went to dr's she found palpable lump/mass @ 10:30 9 cm from nipple. I didnt even notice it until she pointed it out. Went for a US today, they said that they could not see a lump they felt something odd but said that it could be thick breast tissue/dense breast. Could those tests be wrong? SHould I get another biopsy done on this breast? I am confused, I am so stressed out by the past many months. Any suggestions would be great!

Thank you!

Dear jenae818, Over the internet without ability to evaluate including viewing films and physical examination it is difficult to advise.  Discuss this with your doctor. Now that the additional information from the ultrasound is available they can better advise you regarding the next step in evaluation, being able to put all of the information into context of your individual situation.
