I'm at high risk for breast cancer and for about a month, I've been experiencing a strange "tingling" in the upper, outer area of my left breast. It's not constant, nor is it painful in any way. There are no lumps I can feel, yet this strange feeling (almost like a "let-down" when nursing) certainly catches my attention when it happens. I can't seem to correlate it to any specific time or movement. My next mammo is scheduled for May. Could this be something of concern? Thank you.
To reply to your questions, I'm 40 years old and have a family history of bc: mother (dx at 39), maternal grandmother (dx at 60) and maternal great grandmother (dx at 70), all of whom have passed. I was tested for the BRCA gene and was an uniformed negative. (My mother's tumor tissue was tested and was negative.)
There are no skin changes, discharge, etc., although my left breast is slightly larger than my right, but I believe it always has been. I do not were tight clothes, and haven't had any injury I can remember.
