Found a lump

I am 4 months post op ALIF and Sunday I found a lump in my breast. This is not the first time this has happened. I had a benign lump removed 15 years ago. When I was pregnant almost 4 years ago I had another lump that was biopsied and came back OK.

I know that everything will probably be fine but I also dont want anything else to deal with! I dont want any more doctors appointments, Xrays etc. Just want to get on with life.

Because I have a history of this the specialist was able to get me in tomorrow. I am so greatful that I can be seen so quickly.

Wish me luck. I pray this turns out to be nothing.

Thanks for listening....


  • Good luck i will say a prayer for you....
  • That's so scary - and the LAST thing you need on your plate right now. I remember my PCP telling me once that if the lumps can be moved around (through self-examination) they are probably just fibroid lumps. If they seem to be more stationary/anchored, then, have a doc examine right away. Best to catch these things early (but you already know that).

    I have my fingers, toes and eyes crossed for you hon. Keep us posted, okay?

  • How scary this must be for you!!! Good luck with the Dr. tomorrow. I'll be thinking about you, and saying a prayer =) Please let us know how everything turns out k??

  • Oh Hon, this must be scary. But remember, most lumps are negative, and even the ones that aren't usually are treatable if detected early. I know that so soon after spinal surgery you don't want to deal with yet something else, but I am glad you made an appointment to see your dr. tomorrow.

    Good luck! I'll be thinking of you tomorrow.

  • Good Luck Tomorrow
  • ...good luck for tomorrow. We all hope it turns out ok again. Big hugs, Spicey
  • Good luck. Hope it will be nothing serious. I will be thinking of you.
  • I went to the doctor yesterday and they did an ultrasound. The lump is very visable but appears to be just a dense tissue mass. They found a cyst in the other breast (go figure!) but he said it was not something that was suspious.

    I am being scheduled for my yearly mammogram that is a little late due to having my fusion. He is sending me for some new high tech one that has just come out in the last year.

    Overall, probably nothing to worry about. I am so glad that I have such a proactive doctor. He does not mess around with any lumps especially when there is some type of history. I am in good hands.

    Thank you so much everyone's well wishes.
  • Glad to hear things are looking good!
