Well this is my first time on here, but i seriously need advice. For the past few years i have struggled with right breast pain and at times mainly a burning sensation. The pain usually is the right breast area and sometimes up and around the shoulder. Now I do have a lump on my right breast that was diagnosed as a fibrocystic cyst. My doctor suggests to lay off the coffee, tea, and chocolate, even though my mother of 48 at the time, was dx with breast cancer and underwent a left mastectomy, he felt no cause for concern. There has been a few times I have had a pain in my nipple and when i went to touch it i felt a small pimple like lump that was very painful. My first reaction was to squeeze, and when i did i felt a pop and blood with pus secreted out. I have mentioned this as well but he said if it happened again let him know. I cant ger over what i feel and am very worried. I am 27 and my doctor says I am too young to wory a
bout this..any suggestions?..

I would suggest you see a breast specialist. What you have been experiencing is probably not breast cancer, but it is not "normal," either. If this was your primary care doctor, maybe you could start with your gynecologist, rather than a breast specialist. Blood and pus should always concern a doctor, I would think, regardless of where it is or what your history.

BTW... I was dx'ed at 36, and my onc suggested that my daughters should begin regular mammograms when they are 10-12 years younger than I was at dx (my mom died of cancer when she was 46, so makes sense to me). Something to keep in mind.

Let us know how things go.
