Welcome to the site.  This site has many women that are very helpful and supportive that post.  I know you'll find support here.
I think you should do what you can to ease your worries.  It can't be easy on you to have this worry and you know your husband and family would want you to be relieved and not keep something scary like this in your mind.  It could actually be nothing threatening, but double-checking is a good idea.  Let me tell you my experience with that.
I had a lump and had a mammogram done here in The Rural Catskills of New York.  The mammogram machine is in a tractor trailer that travels throughout the region, the hospitals don't even have them here.  Well, the mammo came back normal and the doc up here told me we'd check on it in six months, but this wasn't good enough for me.  I looked up a breast surgeon in my insurance plan, and went for a second opinion.  He was leaving the next day for Japan when they fit me in for the appointment, but he did a needle biopsy and got the results THAT DAY before he left so I would know and It was cancerous.  It was a very good thing I didn't stay with the "it's nothing, don't worry about it" recommendation.  The tumor was big, but it hadn't spread, so I'm ok for a couple of years now post-treatment.  I shiver to think about what could have happened had I waited.
I don't mean to scare you with my story, but it's a true one and I hope it will help you as I always hope it helps people when I share it.  Please keep posting and let us know what you are doing and experiencing.

Hello Reem, and welcome. I agree with coopfesta about getting a second opinion. My daughter is actually going through this issue also. She is getting her third opinion on the 25th. Good luck to you. Keep us posted.

Hi Reem and welcome. I agree w/ what the other ladies have told you. Get that 2nd and even 3rd opinion. We find that our gut instincts are usually right. Is there a history of bc in your family?

Why not ask some of your friends or your friends mothers, what drs in your area they trust? If you don't feel comfortable w/ doing that, then call your local chapter of the Amer Cancer Society and ask for names. They will gladly provide you w/ a list. Also, make sure that you get a copy of the ultra sound and written report to take w/ you.

I can maybe ease your mind a little bit. I just recently went w/ a friend of my daughters that was having the same problem w/ her breast that you have described. She called and asked me what she should do as her family physician told her NOT to worry about it. I called my family dr as well as my surgeon. They both worked together. She had a mammo and an ultrasound. It turned out to be a simple infection that could be cleared up w/ antibotics and a cream (for the itching).

Please confide in someone that you trust. Don't keep this from your husband or family. Support is very important. Please let us know what you do and how things turn out.
