Re: Very Scared
This is my third time trying to reply, I hope this is the charm! I would take some kind of OTC pain medication like tylenol of ibuprofen. If it isn't better in the morning, call your doctor back. You may, even unconciously, be going back to that area to "check it" thus making it more sore. Worry and anxiety always heightens physiological feelings. I am so glad you are had this checked and your doctor is making very sure by doing the correct tests. I had breast cancer in 2007 and the lump I had was not painful but that is not always the case. The lump I had felt like there was cauliflower under my skin. It was not at all smooth, so the lump had lumps. It also did not have smooth edges, it was very uneven.
You have taken all the steps you need to and your doctor is also doing her part. Try to push the negative thoughts out of your head. Remember.... most of these lumps and bumps we have are benign. Fibrocystic, dense breasts are just lumpier. This type of breast tissue, since it is more dense can be more difficult to get a clear shot with a mammogram. Don't be surprised if they have to take the x-rays more than once. My breasts were the same way. Remember, if you are still in a lot of pain tomorrow, call your doctor. Hang in there... take care, Sharon
