This is the 3rd year in a row that my annual mammogram has shown something in left breast that has required follow up. We have repeated mammogram and done ultrasounds. Have also met with general surgeon 3 times in last 3 years as he reviewed mammogram results. He believes it is just cysts and no cause for concern. However, I experience burning and discomfort in my left breast on a regular basis. This pain is much more pronounced after my breast check and mammogram, causing pain for weeks afterwards. Waiting now on word about images retaken of my left breast last week. I am considering having a second opinion of cause of discomfort. Any advice or suggestions welcome.

I had bad pain in my left breast for almost 3 years myself. My breast started to deform some and I finally said something had to give. I had a mammogram and biopsy and it showed nothing but fatty tissue. The dang dr..messed up the test and I got a false reading. I really had a tumor the size of a silver dollar attached to my chest wall bone and was hard to find. I had a bilateral mastectomy and the dr was shocked It had not spread. You know your body...find someone that will listen. Remember some Drs are only there for the insurance money...find one that is in practice to help..not hurt. Best of wishes..
