I mentioned to my gynecologist today at my yearly exam that I have had constant breast pain. They ache and ate tender to the touch and it does not go away. Sometimes there is sharp pain in small areas on one breast below the areola. When she did the breast exam she found a lump in the same area under the areola. And is now sending me to have an ultrasound. I guess she chose that method because my breast are small and won't work with an ordinary mammogram. I am a bit young for needing mammograms, but as history, I do not have children, and have never needed to breast feed. Also I have not had any injury to my breast. But also coinciding with breast pain and lump, other lymph nodes hav been swollen. Also my mother had breast cancer at age 30 which is also a bit young, all she needed was a lumpectomy. My doctor Got real concerned when she heard my mother had breast cancer. Can anyone tell me my chances of this being breast cancer? or could this just be some sort of cyst or fibroids? I go next week for ultrasound, how long before I know results?
