Breast lump removal

Common Questions and Answers about Breast lump removal


Avatar n tn 3cm FibroAdenoma on my left breast and my breast surgen left a choice to me whether to go for the removal of the lump or to keep it and observe. I prefer to go for the removal of the fibroadenoma. But I do see some postings saying that removing it might take some of the breast tissue and this might cause cancer. And if I keep it, that also leads to Cancer. Now I'm very confused. Please let me know what I should do. Thank You.
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. This was 8 months ago and the lump is still there and getting more painful. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn I have a lot of pain in my upper arm, in the breast and the mammogram showed nothing, not even the lump, it was picked up on ultra sound. Given my age, is it wise to have it removed?
Avatar m tn However, there is also a possibility that this represents a new breast mass unrelated to the implant removal or the capsule left in the breast. You should go back to your breast doctor for re-evaluation. Take care.
Avatar f tn Usually, there are few noticeable changes to the breast after a breast lump removal, unless the lump is very large.If it is,and you and your doctor decide to remove it,talk to your Breast Surgeon who would be the best source of information and advice, concerning the cosmetic aspect of your breast. Take care..
Avatar n tn I would definitely opt for removal of this mass since it is quite large and the Pathology report on the tissue removed would certainly be the most accurate. This would also include removal of the area of microcalcifications. Removal for whatever reason I feel is the best choice under these circumstances. A Breast MRI may be valuable since there seems to be some measure of confusion. Regards ....
Avatar f tn t get over within a year i got several what they think is fibrodeomas in my right breast. I have the condition ADH, and also stenosis, I am 42 menoupause, no women reproductive system because of a total hysterectomy and now I am still dealing with lumps in my breast. Is it possible that one could be cancer?
Avatar n tn They are flat already, and removal of the huge lump is going make it even worse. Plus, I have 7 and 5 lump on each side. I am only 26 year old. I am in normal shape 5’3”, 120 lbs and my breasts are very flat. They are barely A cup. I can’t image how terriable it is going to look after removal of these lumps, even only the largest one.
Avatar n tn Dr. Found a lump in the right breast he said that he felt that it had grown a little bit. and wanted to get it out. He also said it was moveable. I am 50 years old. Can there be cancer in the lump is that how it starts and then attaches it self.
Avatar f tn i feel silly if i take oestrogen when i have a lump in my breast, as im aware it can become cancerous even if it is not now. Should i go back to breast clinic and demand to have it removed? i thonk surgeon afraid to as it is so small and moveable..
Avatar f tn I'm 23 and have a lump that I estimate to be about 1.6 cm in my right breast. I discovered it about 10 months ago and right away went in for an ultrasound, mammogram and fine needle biopsy. The results were inconclusive because not enough cells were taken from the biopsy to make a clear diagnosis. I was told it was most likely a fibroadenoma and was given a choice to have another biopsy, have the lump surgically removed or wait and follow-up in 6 months with another ultrasound.
Avatar m tn In that case,I would advise you to take your mammogram/ultrasound reports/films to a breast specialist for a second opinion who might recommend some form of biopsy,removal of the lump or just keep an eye on it. Best wishes....
Avatar n tn I am 41 years old and had a lump (1,5 cm) in my right breast six months ago. I did the US, Mammography and biopsy and it was diagnosed as a fibroadenoma tumour. Sometimes after the biopsy I am experiencing a little pain and sore down my armpit and breast area which I didn't feel it before biopsy. Is it because of the biopsy or the tumour ? Please advise whether I should remove the lump.
Avatar f tn Hi, my sister is 65. a pea size lump was found on her breast through a the second mammogram. However, the doctor didn't recommend an ultrasound he said he wanted to wait 6 months to see if there was a change in size. We have no history of breast cancer in our family. Is this a normal procedure or should she get a second opinion? Pls help. thank you.
1330312 tn?1275341513 but it is the only option left as tht lump in my breast is still undiagnosed due to biopsy failling and i do think this is my best option left thank you for any comments.

Avatar f tn hi, Thank you for your reply.This is my second breast lump removal surgery(cut section 6cmx5cmx1,5cm).Other than a new lump there was reccurence of the old lump which was removed 5 years back(fibroadenosis was the result then).I don't have any family history of cancer. What is my cancer risk regarding my biopsy result that was written in the previous post? Once hyperplasia is detected, is there any possibility that it may stop increasing cells altogether?
Avatar n tn I have been post menapausal for 6 years now. I found a lump in my left breast my provider sent me to have a mammogram and ultrasound but it did not show on these test. I don't feel comfortable with just leaving the lump there, it is the size of a quarter and longated and hard. Should I have further testing like a biopsy or have the lump removed? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/398163'>lump does not show up on tests</a>.
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 f tn In most cases, radiation therapy is not required. Very large malignant phyllodes tumors may require complete removal of the breast for management.
Avatar f tn I am 20 years old and scheduled for an ultrasound of a breast lump under my areola. I was just wondering if the lump is found to be solid, does that automatically mean that it is cancer? If not then does the doctor remove it immediately for a biopsy?
Avatar n tn Past few months, I notice an occasionally painful hard lump at 5 o clock location in my right breast. Mammogram, MRI, and Ultrasound rule out malignance and fat necrosis. What could be the cause for this hardness? My Breast Care Surgeon has no clue on why would this one will develop after ~ 10 years but plans to do a biopsy to rule out malignancy for sure. Any suggestion as to what this lump could be due and should I remove it (even if it is benign?
