Breast lump after hysterectomy

Common Questions and Answers about Breast lump after hysterectomy


Avatar f tn I had a hysterectomy Jan.08'. Two weeks after my hysterectomy a painful lump showed up in my breast next to the nipple. It was painful and swelled up to the point where I could see it without touching it. It was very sensitive. However, it went away after 1 1/2 weeks. I am now on an all natural hrt that has done wonders for me without all the dangerous side affects of clinical hrts. What I am wondering is, should I be worried, what could have been the cause?
Avatar n tn About 5 years ago, I found a small pea sized lump on my left breast. My doctor just told me to watch it. Now, 5 years later, this lump is about the size of a quarter. I had a mommo and ultrasound yesterday. The radiologist also asked for extra film and then said my breasts were too dense. I had an ultrasound and they found a quarter sized "fibroadanoma Tumor". The radiologist said that it may be benign or may be malignant. But i would need a biopsy to be sure.
Avatar n tn and, I certainly would never shame anyone either. But, I look at my life before Hysterectomy and After hysterectomy and just keep plodding along. Thanks for your time. Again, I apologize for answering for Katie....(Katie will forgive me) but I know that neither she nor I intend to offend anyone, but for some reason, this post hit our passion button, if you will.
Avatar n tn after my hysterectomy at 45yrs old I am gaining weight fast...never had mood swings or sweats...taking no harmones..does anything help?Trying all over the counter pills and etc. nothing working...HELP!!
Avatar n tn When I went back for my 4 wk checkup the doctor asked me a lot of questions, one was if I had a period and I told him yes. He then informed me that some women do have periods after a hysterectomy. AFTER HAVING A 2ND PERIOD SINCE SURGERY I AM WONDERING IF THIS IS NORMAL OR NOT????? Everyone says it isn't.
Avatar f tn She has been told the lump that she has in her breast is a B1. What does this mean? She is to have another follow-up in 6 months. However, if she feels any changes when checking her breasts, she is to return immediately to the docotr. I am concerned about what this designation means. She was also told a B3 is breast cancer. Does this mean that this is a precurser to cancer and that it "could be" developing into cancer later? Please enlighten me on this. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Hi my name is Sharon and just came across a quarter size solid lump on my left breast. I am 40 years old and had a total hysterectomy two months ago and was put on the estrogen patch, I also had my entire thyroid removed about a month ago and have been taking the drug Armour for hormone replacement therapy.
Avatar n tn It can be caused due to infection - mastitis or breast abscess, inflammation - trauma to the site or muscle pull etc, or due to hormonal fluctuations as seen during menstrual cycle or OCP or HRT use. Are you on HRT after your hysterectomy. The confirmed diagnosis needs a clinical examination. Before you get to see your doctor you could try some OTC pain relief medication, some analgesic gel or cream for local application.
Avatar n tn 5 years after a radical hysterectomy due to cervical cancer. My wife noticed a little bleeding which required a visit to a Gyn. 2 weeks a pap smear, that was normal, and CT scan that showed a Large mass 7 centimeters in and around the rectal area. She was refered to a Gyn/Onc specialist. A Biopsy was performed that is Non malignant, a Chest Xray and a rectal swab that were both Normal.
Avatar n tn The Dr's found a large lump between by breast and under arm.going for a mammo hoping it's not breast cancer. Has any one had the to happen and how did the tx effect your liver?
Avatar n tn symptom reported with breast cancer, I can tell you my breast lump was painful and malignant cells were found...but only via aspiration biopsy). Also, how long has this severe cramping, flooding occurred? You say that you have breast pain but are not due for a period...but, based on the flooding, when was your last period? So many changes in our breasts are normal, if not pleasant, often due to hormonal changes/stress, age, etc., etc.
Avatar n tn I discovered a soft oblong lump at the base of my breast . My breasts seem to stay tender these days but I have no pain in that area. I had a hysterectomy at a very young age after being diagnosed with endometriosis. I have been on hormone replacement therapy for almost two years now and am wondering what the chances of cancer are. What are the characteristics of a cancerous lump and how much does that vary?
Avatar f tn I am a stage 2 breast cancer survivor of 5 years.My age is 52. I had a lump removed from the right breast followed with 4 chemo treatments and 32 radiation treatments. Currently I am taking tamoxifin and fosamax for previa osteoporosis. Within the last few years my bladder has been slowly desending to the point now where the doctor describes it as stage 4 prolapsed bladder. He has suggested a partial hysterectomy to remove the uterus and then repair the bladder and rectal area.
Avatar n tn I'll tell you about myself first, 34 year old female, history of cystic breasts, partial hysterectomy at age 32, both ovaries removed at age 33, on estrogen replacement therapy for 8 months. New lump on right breast located at 12 o'clock. Swollen lymph node under right arm. Pain in breast and under arm, like something is pinching. Discovered lump in December and has grown since. Had mammogram and ultrasound Tuesday, told they look ok. I'm still scared.
Avatar n tn It is still here! Now my left breast is discharging green and a bit of yellow, yesterday I felt a little round hard lump in the middle of the left breast. When I touch it, it doesn't hurt but after I let go of it, it kind of aches for about 5 min. It just started last night with tingling in the left breast and last week the aveola was very itchy. I had a total hysterectomy 4 years ago. I was told when I was 27 that I also had fibrocystic disease. I take estrogen pills.
Avatar f tn Sometimes it happens when the breast is compressed considerably during the procedure.It will go away after a week or two. You may want to apply cold compresses over the affected area and taking any pain reliever will certainly help. Best wishes...
Avatar n tn Just yesterday I went to have another lump inspected. I was told that it felt like a cyst, and that I have cyctic breast. I am currently taking Vitamin E daily, and decreasing my caffine intake. My question and concern is, "How do I know it is really a cyst?" I had a hysterectomy 9 years ago and have been on Premarin ever since. I questioned if I should remain on this medication, and was advised by my doctor that I needed it, and would be on it from now on.
173119 tn?1297003336 Hi, This breast lump and bruise can be due to fibrocystic changes in the breast. Fragile blood vessels could cause a hematoma underneath the skin even with the lightest pressure. This may resolve after you end your menstruation. I would suggest that this lump be seen by your doctor for evaluation if it doesn't disappear or becomes enlarged.An Ultrasound could be in order to find out the nature of this lump. Best wishes...
400417 tn?1201403749 On top of this, I discovered today that the lump behind my areola had increased to the size of a ping-pong ball and was very painful as well. I was feeling my absolute worst when I discovered the much larger lump in my breast. As far as i know, there isn't any family history of breast cancer and the only cancer I know of was my father, who battled benign brain tumors (at first) which were operated on twice and on the third time, the tumors had become cancerous.
Avatar f tn About 3 weeks ago I was washing in the shower and I noticed something wasn't feeling right under my left breast in the rib area, I noticed a lump there. I called the dr again to see if I could be sooner but there still were no open spots. A few days ago after getting out of the shower and drying off I felt the lump was moving, I got freaked out and went to the ER. I literally cried the whole way because I'm afraid. I get there and was out in less then 20 minutes.
Avatar n tn It is true that most breast cancers are not painful. There are many possible explanations for feeling a lump, most of which are benign. Having said that, if you have a lump, you should make an appointment with your physician to have it evaluated.
Avatar n tn It's the first place my face nuzzles into most of the time. We nearly always end up making love after I've been pressing my face into Her breast region.

Avatar f tn So, I went to my gynecologist and he did a breast exam and he also felt that lump in my breast and he also felt a lumpy area in another part of the same breast. He felt like it was new onset of fibrocystic disease. But he was concerned enough to send me for a bilateral mammogram (with magnification views of one area)followed by bilateral ultrasound. I just got my results and I found out that both studies were completely negative. Neither cystic nor solid lesions were seen.
Avatar n tn Hi, Thank you for contacting me. I know I should now be resured after getting the all clear but I can not help feeling that I have unanswered questions via my test. I just dont feel at ease, especialy for some one who has never suffered with discomfort in these area's ever before. When I had my mammogram and ultra sound and then seeing consultant on the same day.. To be examined and told that all was ok.
Avatar n tn Then a couple of months ago i started experiencing hair loss and fatigue again. I went in for my annual checkup and the doctor discovered a lump in my breast. He sent me for a mamogram and ultrasound and they found a number of cysts present in my left breast. My question is why do i continue to have this issue and what is causing it to keep coming back in different places? I have seen that caffine could be a problem but i only do 2 cups of coffee a day, very little soda and no chocolate.
Avatar n tn The risk factor of having cancer is very for me as there is no cancer in the family. Now 5 months after being told of the second growth I have developed a small pea size lump in my armpit. I hate to go back to the doctor ( as all they want to do is the surgery at this time). Can you give me your opion about.
Avatar n tn over two months ago, i noticed a lump in my abdomen and made an appt. w/my doc. one week later, had a stat ultra-sound performed and was told that i had a 9.8 cm fibroid tumor on my uterus and two cysts on my right ovary. i was informed that it would have to be surgically removed. i educated myself with everything that had to do w/fibroids. never once was i given any idea that this could be cancer or something life threatening.
Avatar n tn Three weeks ago I found a lump in my rt breast, about the size of a dime. After a lot of trouble with insurance co to get in to see the Dr. She also found the lump today and lumps under my rt arm pit assumely the lymph nodes. She ordered a mammogram, ultra sound and biopsies. Hopefully the insurance will approve tests tomorrow. But does this mean I have breast cancer. My cousin died of breast cancer at the age of 42. I am 41 and had cervical cancer and hysterectomy 4 years ago.
