Avatar f tn I had a lump removed from my breast 11 months ago and within a day it felt like the lump was still there. I have been back and forth to the doctors and hospital and they said it was a hematoma and will disolve within a couple of months.

Avatar n tn about a tender lump in my right breast at the 9 o'clock position. I am 23 years old, and do not have a history or breast cancer. My doctor sent me for a Mamm where I was then sent (by request of the technician) for an ultrasound. It has been concluded that I have a 104x1.6x.8 cm slightly heterogeneous breast nodule. My Dr. wants to have the mass removed, not just a biospy done. I am SCARED of what they are going to do, what to expect, and how to handle this unexpected stress.
Avatar n tn 37 y old female- hx of breast implants and removal within 3 months in 1999....lump appeared in January in left breast (most effected by implants-nerve damage scar tissue etc.) Had mammogram and ultrasound- only revealed seroma in left breast where implant used to sit.

Avatar n tn There are different types of biopsies, ranging from needle biopsy to removal of the entire lump. If the determination that a biopsy is recommended the surgeon will usually propose the least invasive method that can give the most information. For your peace of mind you may want to seek the opinion of a breast specialist to evaluate this lump, to figure out what is going on with your breast.

Avatar n tn I had an outpatient removal of a lump(excisional biopsy) from my right breast last Thursday. I did not have a drain. I was tired and had some discomfort on Friday and Saturday but by Sunday I was doing well. I feel almost normal today(Monday) except for the gnawing anxiety waiting for the results! I should find out Wednesday when I see my surgeon again. The only advice I was given was to avoid doing any heavy lifting for a few weeks.
Avatar n tn I have a large lump 4.5cm which from the core biopsy is benign but have been recommended removal. My op is on 14th Sept. I was given my results by phone last week, Fibro ? lesion but expected written confirmation. I just rang breast care nurse with some worries but don't feel happy about the response. I asked if I should get a letter of confirmation but she said no, only my GP would get that.
Avatar n tn This included two lots of surgery and radiation ablation therapy. I recently found a painful lump in my left breast and was referred for a mammogram, ultrasound and fine needle aspiration. The imaging tests were normal. When I went for the results of the FNA I was told that there was nothing to worry about but that they would see me in two months with a view to removing the lump which is still quite painful. Why would they remove the lump if everything came back normal?
Avatar n tn What worries me more is that I have a large lump under the scar. I've seen my doctor today and he said that if the lump doesn't go within a month I'll need another operation to remove it. He said that if the lump stays there the infection will keep coming back. So I suggest you go see somebody very soon because it probably needs to come out. An.
Avatar n tn Hi, can anyone tell me what it means when you have a breast lump underneath the nipple? I am a 19 year old girl, and I've always had this since puberty. It's hard, roundish, and it gets sore when I do self examinations. Also, the "montgomery glands" get reddish and rise.
Avatar f tn Liposuction by any technique can be used to reduce axillary breast tissue. Lipo removes primarily fat, but some breast tissue undoubtedly accompanies the fat.
Avatar n tn I posted down several posts ago about a lump about 2 inches below my breast over the rib area that has been there for around 7 years. It is about the size of a dime until it got irritated/infected and swelled up to about the size of quarter. It had a red ring around it and a few days ago I noticed it was forming a head on the side of it. So naturally I push it nad alot of fluid came out and then lumps of cottage cheese material came out.
Avatar n tn Dear miranda: First, it would be important to know what your doctor means by "precancerous." If it is ductal carcinoma in situ, then a second "lump" within the same breast may well suggest that a mastectomy is the best choice. However, if the pathology is different, then the best intervention would need to be determined based on that information.

Avatar f tn I have lump on the side of my left breast, I went to the doctors and she told me it was an infection under my skin and that it will go away in about two weeks, it started to go away and then all of a sudden it came back bigger and this time it hurt so bad it felt like it was on fire I couldn't even touch it, that area is warm and sore to the touch what could this be?
Avatar n tn Hi, In usual circumstances the lump should not have been a cause of alarm except for two things that you mention - 3 weeks and it changing size. Well at this point i think it is best for you to consult a physician and seek a clinical evaluation and a USG. If your physician finds a cyst, removal of fluid from it will help relieve the pain and swelling.
Avatar n tn I'm 35 years old and was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2004. The lump was a little over a 1/2 inch in size. I had a lumpectomy followed by lymphnode removal (4 positive out of 13), chemo, and radiation. My last mammogram (9/05) was good. I'm now taking tomixifen and have received 1 lupron injection. About 2 1/2 weeks ago, I started experiencing flu like symptoms: Nausea, loss of appetite, chills, indigestion, diarrhea, body aches, and fatigue.
Avatar f tn Hi there, In my opinion your first Surgeon did a fine needle aspiration biopsy by drawing liquid or cells from the lump, and later proceeded with an excisional breast biopsy.(complete or partial lump removal) Both biopsies(Fine needle biopsy and excisional biopsy) must have been sent to a pathologist for microscopical examination to state that the lump did not show cancer.
