Hi worried. No, that does not mean it has spead. Many cancers have been growning for sometimes up to 10 years before they are even felt. It could be that it has just been sitting there. There are some slow growing cancers. I would also advise you to get it tested and biopsied. Biopsy is the ONLY 100% sure answer. If your dr. won't do it, find another dr. It is your body and your life, so don't just say ok.
As Lori said 80% of lumps are benign so odds are in your favor!
Please let us know how it goes. We do care!
It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth -- and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.
