I am 27 and have found a breast lump in my upper left breast close to armpit area, I had a mamogram and ultrasound but they said it is hard to tell because I have VERY dense breast tissue. My breast feels very heavy and my nipple burns and redish/purple color(not the same color as my right breast) Any suggestions?
I would think that if no results were obtained with either test that something addition might have been advised. If there is a lump then it surely would have been obvious at least on the Ultrasound. A breast MRI is often used when dense breast tissue is a problem but that would be at the discretion of your Dr.s based on your total medical history and current symptoms. You might consider consulting a Breast Specialist for some additional opinions / suggestions. Regards ....
