I have just found a second lump very close the the site I had my first lump removed three years ago.  Should I really be worried?
The first one ended up the size of a golf ball when removed but felt very small.  This one feels a bit smaller.  Thankfully the first one was not cancerous, but was going through molecular changes when removed.  No family history of breast cancer that I know of, but my mother had cancer when I was born and beat it, but ended up having it throughout her body thirty years later and died of it.

Sorry no one has answered your post yet. Finding a second lump near the site of the first one is not uncommon. If you have not had it biopsied yet, you certainly should. You never knoow for sure what it is until a biospy. I had a benign lump removed and nine years later in the same spot was where my cancer was found, yet it was a early and small. I had a mastectomy, but 12 years after the fact, I think radiation may have been enough. But you never know for sure. I have had no further problems with breast cancer. My daughter was diagnosed two years later and eight years after that has a recurrence. But then she is younger and her hormones were more active. Get to the doctor and do something about that lump!!! Hugs, MK

Thank you for the response MK. I went to the doctor on Tuesday, had a full blood and heart workout, then had a mam and ultrasound on Wednesday. I just got a call back from my doctor to go back in to "discuss" my results from the lab. I wanted to wait for my mam and ultrasound results before going back in, but he insisted I have to go in today. I guess you could say I'm getting pretty nervous now. Because the previous lump was pre-cancerious, and a family history that has the remaining family on a "cancer watch", I'm feeling really worried.

OK!!! It was good you went and had a full work up! He may have the results of the U/S and mammogram. All it takes is a radiologist reading it and reporting back to the Drl When do you go back to talk to him? Be sure to let us know what you find out, we are at your side! Hugs Mary K. MK is easier.

Once again, thank you so very much for the support. It is very scary to say the least! I was called to come in last night, but this was in regards to very bad ECG and high cholestorol. I'll tell you, things sure can get messed up pretty quickly! LOL! Anyways, I have my next appointment with my doctor next Friday, as the results should be in from the hospital by then. We'll see what happens from there I guess. The last time I had an ultrasound done as well, but the tissue was too dense and didn't show anything. This may be this case this time as well, but from what little the tech would tell me, she could see something, measured the mass, and then proceeded to the nodes as well. The tech also thought I was still too young for the mammogram. At this point I would have preferred to go see the surgeon and just schedule to have it removed instead of wasting time with all this back and forth. Unfortunately my surgeon no longer handles breast surgeries, so I guess I have to go through all these preliminaries all over again. Right now I'll just take it one step at a time. It's funny though, I really don't want anything to show up on the tests, yet at the same time I just want to be proven right that there is in fact something there! The last time I went through this, I was treated as though I were crazy and that there was nothing there! I think I want someone to prove me wrong, and not that I have to prove myself right!!!! Once again though, thank you very much for the support, as even though family seems to mean well, it's really hard to understand what someone is going through unless you've been there yourself. Bless you for your kind words!

Hi June, I have been in the position of feeling like I am a hypochondriac or crazy many times. I hate it. Sorry your ECG and cholestorol are bad. I hope you got some medicine to help. I have no problem in those areas except my triglycerides are not good and I am diabetic so I take medicine for them. Please let us know when you get your mammogram results, too. Hugs MK

Thanks MK, it's funny in a way cause my husband also says that the warranty expires when you hit forty, but I guess being born a premmie, everything else comes early too!!!! I'm thirty eight but am starting to feel alot older lately!!! Anyways, I was really concerned about your daughter, and am hoping that all goes well for you and all your family. My heart goes out to you all!!! June

hi friend ,
I think you have to ask doctor about your problem ,they solved your problem earlier.You know the all the things about breast cancer.After discussion with doctor you have to take care of yourself keep in mind the doctor's point what he told you on your problem.
