I have a lump under my armpit, i was told about 6 years ago in the er that it was a assist, and they wanted to cut it out in the er, well i wouldnt do it, because i was afraid, so for years it would come and go, but now its back, and its slightly bigger and sore, so could anyone tell me if assist can turn into cancer?
I HAVE A LUMP IN MY ARM PIT. HAVE HAD IT FOR AT LEAST 10 YEARS. AT MY ANNUAL MAMMOGRAM, EXTRA FILMS ARE TAKEN. I ALSO HAD A NEEDLE-GUIDED ULTRASOUND AND BIOPSY IN JUNE 2008. - PERFORMED BY A BREAST SURGEON HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I HAVE ALWAYS TOLD BY MY GYNO AND PRIMARY DR THAT THE LUMP IS EXTRA BREAST TISSUE, NOTHING TO BE CONCERNED WITH UNLESS IT IS BOTHERSOME TO ME LIKE WHEN IT RUBS AGAINST MY BRA WHEN IT IS LARGER DURING MY MONTHLY CYCLE. THIS IS A LITTLE ANNOYANCE THAT I CAN LIVE WITH - I'D RATHER DO THIS THAN ELECTIVE SURGERY. BUT SEE YOUR DOCTOR JUST TO MAKE SURE. GOOD LUCK!!!!
