Customer Question
breast lump. i recently had...
breast lump. i recently had a breast lump examined by my gp and they were very unconcerned and reassuring about it. told me to keep an eye on it but that it didn't feel suspicious at all.
beside my breast ,towards my ribcage i have had (for a long time) an area of more fiberous feeling tissue. i have occasionally felt soft lumpiness in that area.
now, in that tissue, i have a lump that is about the size of a lentil (1/2 cm). if i dig around, i can feel that it is in this fiberous tissue and not attached to the chest wall or skin above it. it seems firm and round and slips out of my fingertips when i try to grab it. it does not feel soft like a cyst but rubbery.
i'm just looking for a second opinion because i am still worried after my doctors reassurnace .

thank you. no i haven't. my doctor felt after the exam that i had normal breast tissue and the area in question did not feel suspicious to her at all.
could you tell me what your impression is of what i described?
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
i should mention that i was recently pregnant. had a miscarriage at 9 weeks. this would add to hormone issues...

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
