Hello,

I have never turned to forums like this before, but I am completely freaked.

I am a 26 yr female and for several weeks I have been monitoring my breasts as I have noticed some odd changes. The most alarming change is for about 1 month the upper right side of my right breast located closest to my armpit area has been sore, like a bruised feeling, however I only feel that soreness if I am examining the breast. At that same time I found a lump.mthe lump seems hard and doesn't really move. Although it doesn't appear to be swollen from the outside of the breast it certainly feels very swollen, inflamed on the inside area. This part of my breast certainly has no feeling resemblance to my left breast. My breast nipples have been itching like crazy as well.

I called my family dr who didn't even see me, instead she has ordered me an ultrasound. I go in tomorrow at 8:30 for this test.

Please also its I am very petite, 5"3 130 lbs and I have naturally large breast. 34DD

Should I be worried this is cancer? I'm so terrified.

An ultrasound sounds like a good start. You are young and breast tissue can be very dense/lumpy. Mine has always been that way. Hard to tell what would be normal or not. Mine also can get very sore depending on the time of the month. I have also found that if I have a lot of caffeine mine will be sore. Try not to panic. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
