 I went to get a sonogram Friday because I felt a new lump. I have had them before but my doctor thought I now had 2 in my left breast and 1 in the other. The nurse found three lumps, one under my arm, and one at the bottom of my breast. Both of these are only the size of a nickel at the most. The other one is under the breast muscle and cover most of my breast. She messured it at 2 inches by 1 inch. I have lost an aunt, and my grandmother to breast cancer. My other aunt this summer had a double masectomy for breast cancer. She is doing great and her out look looks great. The nurse asked me during the sonogram if I had breast implants and I don't. She told me to try not to worry this weekend. I have been trying to see if other people have had lumps that big and them not be cancerous but I cannot find anyone with a lump that big. Does anyone know of anyone else like this. I am not worried too much about having breast cancer, I would just like to be prepared. I am 39 years old with four children and two grabdchildren. I am in school to become a teacher, and already work in a school with children. If I have to be out of work I would like to be prepared and prepare my family. Anyway I wouldn't mind having perky new breast after all this time. tongue

Hi, and welcome. sorry you have need to be concerned, but the nurse gave you good advice when she said try not to worry. Can't change what is. Eighty percent of breast lumps are not cancer. That said, you do need to find out what your lumps are. Some women just have lumpy breasts. But, with your family history, I would be cautious and make sure you get solid answers. Please keep everyone here posted on what you find out. People here care and will be with you no matter what the outcome of your additional tests. Hugs, Lauri

Thank you, I think the waiting is the hardest part. I know it is probrably not cancer just concerned.

You can do anything if you set your mind to it.
