Patient Comments: Breast Lumps in Women - Benign Lumps

Please share your experience with the discovery and diagnosis of non-cancerous breast lumps.

Comment from: liz, Female (Patient) Published: November 18

I am 30 years old and I had a 3 cm mass at my right breast so I went to see a doctor and she said that I need to go for an ultrasound. So I did and after that the doctor found out that I have 3 cm lump, already a big one. So after that they told me to go for biopsy, and I did a fine needle aspiration biopsy. When I got the laboratory result my doctor said that it is a mass and it is not cancerous but still I am worried because I could still feel the solid mass in my right breast. The doctor said it could be removed if I want to, but still I am scared it could lead into a cancer in a long run.

I had breast lumps removed 5 times. My first was when I was 18 years old. And 5 after that. I have had 2 needle biopsies and 3 aspirations. In today"s medical procedures with mammograms and sonograms there is no need to cut out lumps before doing a needle biopsy. I have so much scar tissue it is hard to feel what is normal. I suggest you have it checked and get a needle biopsy first.

I was diagnosed with fibrocystic breast when I was 15 and had my first surgery at 16. The lump that was removed was the size of half a golf ball and extremely painful. Unfortunately, my surgeon butchered me horribly. My next surgery was when I was 18, a week before prom. Something happened so that I couldn't walk afterwards, so I had to learn to walk a week before I was set to walk in 5-inch heels. I get ultrasounds every 6 to 9 months, and every time I get one, I hear that I have more lumps. I have refused for doctors to cut on me because they aren't cancerous. Now I have a huge lump really close to my nipple and it gives my boob a burning sensation. I am very nervous to see what it might be. My advice: Get checked.
