I am 42 and when in for my Mammogram a little over a week ago. Yesterday almost at 5pm my Doctor called me and refured me to a surgeon. The radiologist  how sent my Doctor the results did not put what breast this was found in. I go year for my mammorgram and that is a good thing. A few eeks ago I started getting hot for no reason. It was below 50 outside and not heat was on in my home. I then did a breast exam and noticed a change on my right breast almost under my arm. It is shaped like a ciger and is about 1/2 inch long. It is hard and doesnt move. It is tender in that area. When I had the mammogram they did and exam and she said she found nothing out of sorts. I cannot call ther surgen until Monday because my Doctor did not call me until they where colse. So now im am going nuts thinking the worst. I know i shouldnt do this but i am scared.

Take a deep breath and try to relax. Seventy-five to 80 percent of breast lumps are NOT cancer. The referral to a surgeon for a biopsy is the appropriate next step. A biopsy is the only way to know for sure what his mass is. Since you have yearly mammograms, anything found is early. And, the fact that the radiologist did not see anything suspecious, is a good sign. Keep busy in the coming days. Let us know what you find out about this mass. Lauri
