I had a lump that was removed two weeks ago that did not show up on either my mammogram or my ultrasound, yet it was there. Luckily it was not cancerous. You should follow up with your doctor for further evaluation. I understand your worry--I sure did! The sooner you get it looked at and diagnosed(hopefully as a cyst) the sooner you can stop worrying! Good luck!

I also have a pea sized lump that didn't show up on imaging.  The breast surgeon that I saw said a needle biopsy was not an option for me since the lump is small and I have breast implants.  So, he is having me come back to see in in 6 weeks to see if it changes at all.  I am not happy with the wait and see approach.  I am worried sick about this lump, although the dr. doesn't seem too concerned.  I don't know how they can tell me to 'not worry' if they can't tell me what it is!

Anyway, get  your lump checked out and hopefully you will get a definitive answer.
