I feel not a lump but more like large area hardening deep down - on the side of my left breast - near underarm, it doesn't feel like a lump but larger mass deep down in the breast. My right breast also has similar area but smaller. If I press hard enough, it hurts (in both breasts). Should I be concerned?
I would be really concerned if this hardening was limited to one breast, I mean really concerned. But in both breasts this sounds more like fibrocystic breast disease. Still, I would go to the doctor and make sure it's nothing to worry about. Best, Katrin
PLEASE see you OBGYN of MD for a mammogram. If it is nothing then no harm done right? I had my first at 40, not the 50 recommended, if I hadn't, I might not be here today as they got it in time, and only had to do radiation and that was 7 years ago this month! Don't wait please.
