Smile Lump in right breast

I am 40 years old and found a pretty good sized hard lump in my right breast this past Saturday. It is about an inch long and a 1/2 inch wide. It is located about an inch above my nipple and it is not painful. I wouldn't have even known it was there if I didn't feel it. I do have green/gray discharge from both nipples, however it is only upon compression. I had a discharge (milky/yellow) about 2 years ago when they found calcifications in my left breast after finding an enlarged lymph node in my left armpit, and after several tests, ended up having a lumpectomy, although all cells were benign (pre-cancerous). They told me then that the discharge wasn't anything to worry about. I am concerned in the change in color of the discharge and obviously the hard lump. I have never had any hard lumps in my breasts before. I have dense breasts with liquid filled cysts though. They tell me that when I have my mammograms and ultrasounds. I had a complete hysterectomy at 30 years old, however I do have one ovary left. So, I'm not sure this has anything to do with a "cycle." I have read a lot, more than I probably should have. I have an appointment with my breast oncologist for this Wednesday morning. Can anyone offer any insight on this to settle my nerves?

Re: Lump in right breast

Hello, One thing I learned, if the lump does not move around, and it stays in one place, please get it checked out and I hope things go fine for you. Take care of yourself and try to stay positive.

Re: Lump in right breast

Its hard to know whether it moves or not because it is all tissue and it moves. That is what is confusing, however I am going tomorrow morning to the breast oncologist and should know more then. Thank you so much for your response. It sounds like you or someone you know had a similar situation. Hope it all went well.

Re: Lump in right breast

if the lump is smooth and round its probably just another cist. I have those to. but I would definitely mention the color change in the fluid. My prayers are with you.

Re: Lump in right breast

Hello, I just found out I have breast cancer on July 25. My lump did not move and I knew something was wrong. I wish you the best of luck. I go see the plastic surgeon on this Friday and then I have the big surgery.

Re: Lump in right breast

I am very happy to say that I went to see my breast oncologist yesterday and found out that the lump I found over the weekend is a benign cyst. :-) Thank you all for your insight and support.
