just wondering , if anyone knows what this might be or if they have experienced it.
i went to the doctor 2 months ago for a breast exam, which he said was good. i went because i had a weird thing happen during a breast exam. during my exams, i push my breast from one side to the other, mashing them around. i know this isn't the right way to do an exam but, i don't really know why i started doing it. anyway, sometimes what feels like a " nodule" comes from the part of my breast tissue that is being mashed to the part of my breast that meets the breast bone in the center of my chest. it's kinda like when i mash hard on one side, it pushes this nodule out where i can then feel it. the nodule is about the size of a large pea, obviously moves very freely through the breast. my doctor didn't get to feel it because he couldn't find it but, said a cancerous lump wouldn't present that way. it doesn't seem to have grown but i don't know since i only experience occasionaly. should i just stop doing breast exams that way and do them right and not worry about it? if i do them right, i know i will never feel the lump anymore. i never would have even known it was there by doing a breast exam the right way.
