Nodule Behind Left Nipple

Recently I found what feels like a nodule behind my left nipple. It is tender and hurts sometimes during the day. I am on BI/PRO 0.75/90 mg troche.  I am scheduled for a mammogram this month. My sister was on the same med and was diagnosed with breast cancer last month. She has since had a lumpectomy. We have no other history of breast cancer in the family. Could this be caused by the bioidenticals? Does this sound like a possible cancer? Thanks.

Anything is possible which I'm sure you know but there is no way to even venture a guess. The results of your Mammogram will give you the answers you seek regarding the nodule you describe. Although family history is a factor it only represents a small percentage of all Breast Cancer cases that are diagnosed. The medication you and your Sister are on may also be a factor of course. Keep us posted when you get the results of your Mammogram.  Regards ...
