Well my PCP told me my mammogram and sonogram showed no Cancer it was a non cancerous lump that bears watching it is the size of a dime smooth edges so that means no cancer she told me. I go back every 6 months for Sonogram and mammogram for 1 year so if it doesnot grow I will go back to yearly mammograms and sonograms to keep an eye on the lump.
If it does change then we will discuss options too.
Also ladies I will check back to say Hi for yu all ofeered me so much support during these months of tests etc..

No doctor, no matter how good, can tell with 100% certainty if a lump is cancer just by looking at it. I know the doctor told you what you wanted to hear, but I strongly urge you to consider pushing so that you have total piece of mind.
Good luck to you.

I agree with Julie. I was told in Dec. (2004)that my ultra sound was negative to be told in May (2004) that I had breast cancer. You should ask for a biopsy so that everyone can be 100% sure. I am not trying to scare you but
its better to be sure.
I pray all turns out well and that in the end it is B9.

I also agree, Heide. Please ask them to check it again. I was told that i just had fibrosistic breasts with calcifications and they always felt lumpy to me. Doctors and mammograms found nothing unusual. When my nipple inverted they finally thought it should be checked further. The cancer was hidden against my chest wall behind the calcifications. I'm sure that I've had cancer for a long time, several years, but no one diagnosed it til last Feb.

I hope that yours is benign! But it would be best if you get a biopsy and know for sure.

HUGS and prayers!

Heidi, I had two lumps that were benign, but neither time did the doctor tell me that he thought they were, I had biopsies that gave me pathological assurance they were benign. Now when I had the last lump which was not benign the radiologist told me they were highly suspicious for cancer and I knew from that to really expect cancer. I think most of us agree that the only definite way to know for sure is to have a biopsy done. Waiting for another six months may not make a big difference if you have a slow growing cancer, but an aggressive cancer could do a lot of changing in six months. Ask for asssurance from your doctor. Hugs MK

I know you heard just what you wanted to hear and that news is great.  But biopsy is the only way to know for sure.  Don't be afaid, it is just one more path to total truth of what is unclear.  You will be able to completely be at peace about the lump and not wonder every six months.  As MK mentioned a slow growing cancer can take lots of time, sometimes up to ten years.  A fast growing cancer will make marked changes.  Mine was a fast growing type.  Thank God I found it when I did. 
I will have you in my prayers and please persue this for your own peace of mind.
