I have this lump in...
I have this lump in my right breast, it is towards the edge of my breast, I have had it for a couple months, it has gotten bigger but not huge. It’s very mobile, feels smooth, and is firm but I can kind of push Into it. What would this be? Could it be cancer? I also just had a baby 2 weeks ago.

It sounds like a benign breast cyst from what you tell me

Not cancer and nothing serious but you need to have a doctor evaluate this with an exam and an ultrasound

Please let me know if you need any more information

Are cysts firm?

Yes and the fact that it has enlarged in such a short period of time is very typical of a cyst

I probably noticed it 3/4 months ago. So I shouldn’t be concerned about cancer?

No, I'm sure it isn't cancer

I have had my obgyn feel it like 6/8 weeks ago and she said she wasn’t worried but what’s it

Sorry--was that a question?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Do you think I should get another opinion or just leave it?

It's fine just to leave it since it isn't cancer and doesn't need treatment

I'm just saying that if I were your doctor I would get the ultrasound

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
If you weren’t worried why would you get an ultrasound?

Just to document it--standard procedure for me

Just one more question, what are signs of a suspicious lump?

Hard, not movable and not enlarging as quickly as yours did

Ask Your Own Oncology Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
This lump feels hard around the outside but softer in the middle, is that normal?

For a cyst, yes
