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.
