Do they have the cystic tissue? Like the ones that need to be drained?

My twin and I have that. My Doctor told me that generally means there is less of a chance for it to be cancer.

Try to relax and not worry too much. Stressing out doesnt help. And I know thats a really annoying thing to hear too. =/

Don’t stress!  You’re doing the right thing by going to the doctor as soon as you notice.  That’s all you can do at this point.  Hope it all works out for you!

@healthybee26:  Chances are it’s nothing serious; remember that. Take deep breaths! I’m so glad you’re being proactive about getting it checked out.

@Jijitattoo:  what she said.

From experience (I have had breast cancer and currently have my own lump) lumps which move around tend not to be cancerous but more likely cysts or breast mice. This isn’t medical advice but just some commonality advice from talking with other patients and many medical staff. Every cancer I have had has been fixed/non moving.

try not to panic. i found a lump last year and unlike you i put off going to the doctor for over a year!! It turned out to be a cyst which they have just left as she said it will go on its own (its still their however) . got myself so worked up about it because FI’s mum has breast cancer- well shes just finished her chemo and everything is looking great. I got told off my the doctor for not seeing someone sooner.

Dont panic 🙂

Try not to panic – I know it’s easier said than done.  I discovered a lump ealier this year and went for a mammogram. That lump turned out to be a  cyst but they discovered 2 small tumors in the other breast. By the time I went back to the doc’s met with the specialist and booked with the hospital to get them removed it was 3 weeks of sleepless nights.  Luckily they both tuned out to be a fibroadenoma.  I am 50 so I automatically thought the worst.  It’s most likely nothing but get it checked out so you can at least relax.

@HelleCat:  Breast mice are fribroadenomas – non cancer tumors that move around when you feel them.

I become an expert when my tumors were discovered.
