Re: 10 mm nodule in breast
I would see a surgeon if I were you. Seeing a surgeon doesn't at all mean that you are going to be, or have to be, scheduled for any type of surgery. They have the knowledge to provide you with the best treatment plan and follow up care. Keep in mind that breast nodules can show up on film and not be palpable as well as not show up on film (mammogram or ultrasound) yet are palpable. The surgeon will most likely try to aspirate this nodular area to see if fluid returns. If it does, then it's a cyst and he will recommend follow up in a couple of weeks or so. If no fluid returns when aspirating, then the surgeon will most likely recommend a biopsy, which is a good plan since you have a family history.
