i have an appointment to have a lump in my breast looked at on Thursday. i have had it for awhile & noticed that it has gotten much bigger over the months. can you tell me what i should expect done & if i should request a certain test over another for accuracy. i'm 38 & in great health. thx!
so my doctor scheduled a mammogram & an ultrasound to determine what exactly my breast lump was. i was lucky enough to have both done this morning & even more lucky to be given the results before i left the hospital.
i was told i have cluster of cysts & was advised to see a breast specialist to either have them drained or removed. my doctor won't get the results for another 2 days so i guess i'll wait to see who she suggests i see & do.
the mammo wasn't as bad as what i thought it'd be - everyone makes it out to be very painful but to me it was just a little uncomfortable. i guess now i have nothing to fear when i turn the big 4-0!
i had my lump removed 3 days ago. i'm a little sore & tender but over all doin well. i find out the results on friday. i'm very positive that all will be good & this will just have been a life lesson for myself & to encourage others to check ur boobies :o)
