You have to check this out with your doctor, as he/she will be much more knowledgable than any of us and he/she will know if there is anything to worry about, and further testing indicated.

Many strange things happen when you are pregnant; it could even be a milk duct filling up.

As a rule, caner in the breast is not painful.

Yet, you have all my sympathy about being nervous, as I think we would all be, especially while pregnant.

All the best, KATRIN

Have your OB/GYN check it out tomorrow. Don't be afraid, take control and have it checked out.  I was just diagnosed with breast cancer and am dealing with that. I know the fear you're talking about, but for your baby's health and you own, check it out tomorrow!
