Hi Everyone,

So I wanted to let you know I saw the surgeon today and he immediately put me at ease - sort of.  He asked me a little about what brought me to his office and where I was feeling the lumps.  He felt exactly what I felt, and remarked one was smaller than the other.  After the exam he said he thought because they were lobular they were very likely to be fibroadenomas and they had likely increased in size lately which may have caused the pain I have been experiencing.  I asked if it was possible they were missed on my most recent mammogram (April 10, 2014) and he confirmed my fears that mammograms are not always 100% especially for people like me who have dense breast tissue.  He said he would order an ultrasound and we would take it from there, he expects the ultrasound to confirm his expectation of fibroadenoma.  Who knows, I guess I feel better "mentally" than I did 24 hrs ago but now I have a painful lump in the middle of my chest (between both breasts but more to the left). Less stressed but functioning.....hope you are all well out there tonight.

Hey Superstressed,
I bet your doc is right. He knows what he is feeling, if he was concerned I feel like he would have ordered a biopsy straight away. Good luck for the U/S, I feel like you are going to be just fine and your docs prediction will be confirmed. Sending you a big hug, I know you have been on a major anxiety roller-coaster the past few days, but everything will be ok.

Thanks Nole and everyone for the well wishes.  I truly hope all of this turns out to be a benign issue but in the meantime it sure does help reading other peoples stories and words of encouragement.  This website is the only one I will allow myself to view as surfing the internet, as we all know, leads to more panic and anxiety.  I have the ultrasound scheduled for Monday morning, I will send updates after that.

Hi Everyone,

I had the breast ultrasound done today, I was even able to hold myself together while I waited for the radiologist to come into the room after viewing the images and she said the lumps are cysts.  I am relieved and exhausted all at the same time but obviously very happy.  I will resume doing breast checks more frequently (something I always avoided) so I can become more familiar with changes.  Thanks to all if you for your support.  I will have to accept lumpy breasts are my new reality.
