A few days ago I discovered a lump in my left breast. Today it has become painful. I am 8 weeks postpartum and I breastfed a little at first but no longer am. I'll be seeing the doctor next week but I was wondering if anyone had any similar experience or has an idea as to what this might be?
dont assume anything. Get it checked asap. When I became pregnant with my first pregnancy I found a lump. Everyone told me its my milk duct. I went to my doctors and she wasnt concerned, sd it sounded more like a cyst. We waited over a month before trying to do anything about it and she was unsuccessful at draining it. Booked me for an ultrasound about 5 weeks after finding it and I immediately was sent for a biopsy of it. 2 weeks later got the results that changed my life. Stage 3 breast cancer. I dont want to alarm u, it could be nothing at all. But Do NOT put it off. Mine grew from stage 1 to stage 3 in a total of 7 weeks. Dont let the doctors or anyone tell u cancer doesnt cause pain either. Mine was painful and thats how I noticed the lump. I also had a misscarriage before finding the results of the biopsy. 2011 wasnt a great year for me. Age also doesnt play a factor in it, I was only 24 when diagnosed.
