still a little concerned about general hardness particularly when I press the nipple area? though again not a particular lump the tissue inside the breast does not bounce back like the other one which is more soft. again as said it always felt fuller than the other but for some reason it is concerning me more now this last few months..
I hope your answer is correct. am going to GP tomorrow but am so scared
I visited my doctor who was concerned that the breast was heavy and hard - as I had been. she referred me to a breast clinic anyhow as a matter of procedure but was not able to reassure me that it is hormonal or not sinister though she said it could be. I felt that she was worried about it. i am even more anxious now ..
thank you and sorry to be a bother. that is reassuring. what is a palpable mass? my breast does feel like a mass at the moment particularly around the front. thanks for your reply . this will be my last reply
Thank you Dr Basu but it seems that things are not as we might hope. No lump showed up on mamagram or ultrasound but they don’t like thickness/firmess of the breast so have taken biopsy. Results next week but they have told me that they are very concerned as tissue is so hard and heavy etc – as I explained to you. I am so upset. Though they don’t know result/ and there is no lump they still seem to be counselling me towards a difficult result. It was the radiologist that said all this. I wasn’t seen by an oncologist. What do you think?
They did say I had a very small gland in armpit though only detectable by ultrasound. they took sample of that also.
They also said there is a possibility that the normal process of lactation tissue turning to fatty tissue may have been interfered with by the medication I am on i.e. tegretol (anti-seizure). but they also said they are worried
Thank you Dr Basu. It is very helpful to be in touch with you.
