Hello, I am new to this so I hope I am doing this right.
So about two months ago I felt a very small ball like feeling lump on my left breast right under my nipple area, ultrasound guided biopsy done and the Dr. said it looked like a fibroadenoma but they could not guarantee that 100% without doing a breast biopsy. At 1st I didn't want to perform the biopsy cause they also gave me the option of doing a 6month US follow up, but with my family history of Cancer my mother recently being diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer and then my own history of having Thyroid Cancer 3yrs ago they pushed for a biopsy. I had it done a week ago and was just told to take it easy the 1st two days no lifting anything over 5lbs I followed the instructions took it easy the two days and then told me I could return back to normal activity after. On the 3rdday I started getting shoulder pain and just yesterday I started getting really bad sharp pains on my breast and what feels like to be muscle spasms around my breast and under armpit area sad I thought after the two days I would be fine I don't know if this is normal has anyone experienced this before? Did I do something wrong I mean what is the worst that can happen from having a ultrasound guided biopsy which I was told is a very small easy procedure??

Hi Kindness4all & welcome to Healing Well. I think if this were me I would call the drs office & speak to the nurse. The nurse can talk to the dr if she is unable to answer your questions. I am not trying to indicate there is a problem because I truly do not know. Is there a number you can call on your paperwork? I would look & if one is listed I would call it.

Take care.

Hello and welcome, Kindness4all. I don't think you did anything wrong to cause the pain and spasms you report. By now your doctor has probably called you with the results of the biopsy. I pray the results are negative, but if that is not the case and you find yourself on the path of dealing with breast cancer, please ask any questions here that you may have. If you have the time to read my posts, I have basically documented everything from the mammograms, biopsy, surgery, etc. So you will have a good idea of the multitude of things you'll experience. Don't be scared if the diagnosis is positive. Cancer treatment is very effective these days.

Please let us know he results of your biopsy and ask any questions you may have.
