I am 31 yaers old. I found out that i have a lump on my left breast. I went to ther doctor, and he advised me to have an ultrasound. I immediately had the ultrasound, and the impression was either lipoma or small, focal abcess formation.
The doctor said if i want it to remove by surgery but i refused, becasue of some issues i have already heard. There are cases sometimes wherein the condition was aggaravated once the patient undergo surgery.
My question now is, is there any medication to remove the lump in my breast? Is there a possibility to result to cancer?is this fatal already?
Both a lipoma and a focal abscess are non malignant conditions and you need to stop worrying. You have been advised surgical excision for the removal of the lump , to prevent any superadded infection and for the pressure symptoms. You could discuss the role of antibiotics in your case if the surgeon thinks it is infected, but there are no medicines that can make the lump go away. The best option still is to go in for a surgical removal The procedure is very safe usually. I think that should help you relax a bit. Discuss with your surgeon in detail the entire procedure and that should put you more at ease and maybe you change your mind. Goodluck.
