Well I think you should return for the follow-up exam .... whenever that is and I doubt that you have breast cancer. If you found this "knot" in Sept. 2008 why the long wait to return for another exam ?? If you were advised to have a follow-up exam you should already have had it done. Ultrasound is harmless and can be done as often as necessary. I would advise you to see your Dr. very soon and have whatever test is recommended. What you found could very well have been a lymph node but you shouldn't be waiting this long to find out for certain.     Regards ....
