Just talked to my doctor today.  Apparently I have what appears to by a cyst, but they're not sure as it's "complex and has 'junk' in it."  It is about the size of a grape (which is not what I was feeling--mine felt like a bb).  My doc is going to go ahead and send me to a surgeon so it can be biopsied just to be sure.  She was okay w/them cancelling the mammo but (I believe) wants a more in depth check and u/s from the surgeons.  Doc says the NP in the surgery ward feels basically all the cancerous (and non-cancerous) lumps that come in so she's very skilled. 
I will keep you all posted and want to thank you again for your kindness, your advice, support, and warmth!

Glad to hear they are going to remove the lump. That is the very best way to know for sure what is there. Please come back and verify that it was junk, ok? I hope that is all it is. I am chuckling because I have never heard of junk in a cyst or lump. But then we learn new stuff here everyday. Hugs MK

So glad to hear you are having it biopsied! You are in my thoughts and prayers for "junk"! Let us know how it is, ok? L&H, Gail

A biopsy will give you difinitive answers and that is what you want. Kudos to your doc for referring you to a surgeon. Please keep us posted on what you find out. Eight of 10 breast lumps are not cancer, so the odds are on your side. Good luck. Lauri
