Gosh, this is hard to say.  You are wise to have sought help and guidance from your doctor and it sounds like they are being thorough. The ultrasound will be helpful in alleviating concern, I hope!  When do you get the results? Was this just basic blood work you had done or did they do a marker test for breast cancer via blood?

Hi there, As you were physically examined by your doctor and she/he must have taken a detailed history as well. I hope there will be nothing serious and hope your ultrasound results will be normal too.
Fibrous tissue can also cause indentation by damaging or engulfing the ligaments of cooper in the breast which attach the underlying tissue of the breast to the overlying skin. This can be due to aging, breastfeeding, excessive stress or pull on the breast such as during an activity like sports or running, obesity, etc.
Best wishes!
