Breast cancer under 30

Common Questions and Answers about Breast cancer under 30


Avatar f tn At lymph node dissection for breast cancer a certain area of tissue under the arm is removed to examine the lymph nodes. The number of lymph nodes found in this area can vary greatly between women. Information about whether or not cancer is found in the lymphnodes under the arm gives us information about spread of the cancer and is part of the staging of the cancer.
Avatar f tn 3% of cases are from women under 30, so the chances of it being cancer are very slim. Also, there is a program called Life for Every woman. If you qualify, then you can obtain a free cancer screening. Just go to or google the name of the program to get a number to call for more info.

494669 tn?1275362475 The most common sign of breast cancer is a lump or thickening in the breast. Other potential signs of breast cancer include: a spontaneous clear or bloody discharge from the nipple, retraction or indentation of your nipple, a change in the size or contours of the breast, flattening or indentation of the skin over the breast or redness or pitting of the skin over your breast.
888988 tn?1241304941 Hi, I was just wondering how many people on here were dx with ovarian cancer under age 30? I am 29 and have a 7 x 6 cm mass on my left ovary. This was not there 4 months ago. I have had periods every 15-17 days since last Dec. I have 2 kids and had tubal ligation. I've been going to doctors for over a yr now trying to find out why I am so tired all the time. I also have back and pelvic pain; and now my stomach looks like I am 5 months pregnant. I am gassy all the time and nauseated.
Avatar f tn My first question is, is there any way to conclude that this is breast cancer? If it is breast cancer, does it not start in the breast and in this case it the cyst started under her arm and am a bit confused if it is breast or other type of cancer? The doctors had done mamogram and ultrasound but found no cancer in her breast nor in any other organ. Secondly, approximately what stage of breast cancer would be estimated from the pathology report?
Avatar n tn Dear serenehealthnut: Breast Cancer is extremely uncommon in women under 20. Skin on the breast is like skin anywhere on the body and is subject to a variety of abnormalities, including infection, eczema etc. If it has returned to normal, it is more likely to be something other than cancer. However, if you are concerned or if this returns, you should bring it to the attention of your doctor.
Avatar n tn i have a tender area under my left breast which is sore to touch and appears swollen, i have been examined and had a mamogram all seems fine, but, my breasts are very heavy and i cannot go without a bra at anytime except when i am in bed. I had pneumonia 10 years ago caused by pleuracy and haven't been the same since. could it be lung cancer?
Avatar n tn Is this a cause for alarm. My aunt died from breast cancer. Her lump was actually under her arm as well. My lump feels like a bump under my skin. I first thought it was a hair bump just like my family thought it was a hair bump under my aunt's arm but it was more. What should i do.

Avatar f tn My 15 year old daughter developed some lumps under her left breast about 2 months ago.It started with one now there are several, they have also spread to under her right breast.It is not on the breast itself, it is right under it,like right below the crease, feels like they are sitting on top of her rib cage. Took her to the doctor,they did an ultrasound,but couldnt get good pictures.So they sent her for an MRI.
Avatar f tn Hi, Although CA 15-3 is a tumor marker for BC, it is most useful in following the course of treatment in women diagnosed with breast cancer, especially advanced breast cancer. CA 15-3 levels are rarely elevated in women with early stage breast cancer. Keep in mind that this test is somewhat nonspecific. Cancers of the ovary, lung, and prostate may also raise CA 15-3 levels.
Avatar m tn my doctor prescribed diognostic curetage tests and as refused that she prescribed some tumor tests such as cea, ca 15-3,ca19-9,ca125 which are all in normal range except ca15-3 which is 31.7. I am really worried as i have heard this is a breast cancer marker. can it be indicative of breast cancer or one should combine with those normal range results? I am going to have mommography in two weeks but plz answer this.(plz do not show this online .
Avatar n tn said when she did the ultrasound that one cyst looked like maybe it broke and bled(since it has a grey area) the other breast I could not read her.Can you always tell by an ultrasound if it is cancer or not?
Avatar m tn You should see a surgeon who is experienced with cancer. The lump isn't necessarily cancer, but there are all sorts of cancer possibilities. For example, this could be Hodgkins Disease or a metastatic deposit from a primary tumor somewhere else in the body such as the lung. Don't forget that males can have breast cancer too. Have there been any changes in your left nipple? If so, breast cancer should certainly be ruled out.

Avatar n tn t recieved my period since september 2008, and its now april 2009. i have a large lump right under my nipple and i think i just found another lump under my breast that is small but kinda sore. i was told that i am slightly amnemic, but i've been trying to be as healthy as possible... im just really worried and i want to know whats going on with me.. does anyone have any ideas or advice?
Avatar m tn Most breast cancer is not painful. However, if you have a new lump, the general rule of thumb is that it should be evaluated. You should make an appointment to see your doctor.
Avatar n tn My mother died at 36 from Breast Cancer and I was wondering if there was anywhere in northern ireland that conpllete private breast screening for those aged under 40
Avatar n tn I am only 30 years old, and my grandmother had a mastectomy about 30-35 years ago for breast cancer, and I have to aunts who both were diagnosed with fibrocystics of the breast.. Could I be suffering the same disease? I am scared, as my family is in California and I am in Texas and have no real support network. Please help to put my mind at ease. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I have been given different opinions related to the ability to detect cancer. I do not have a history of breast cancer. Thank-you for your input.
Avatar f tn Using only recommended unscented creams or lotions after daily treatment ( ask your oncologist which one is best for you) Some patients develop a sunburn-like reaction that occurs in the fold under the breast or in the fold between the breast and the arm.Skin reactions usually heal completely within a few weeks of completing radiotherapy. To answer your questions: 1) It’s really up to you,but you won’t need to take time off work.

414018 tn?1268611672 Well, I'm not under 30 anymore but I was 34 when dx... a great place to connect with young cancer patients (under 40) is Planet Cancer ( or I'm Too Young For This!
