Usually there wont be pain in many types of cancers, and that is the reason detection is also delayed in many cancers.

Early breast cancer usually does not cause pain. Still, a woman should see her health care provider about breast pain or any other symptom that does not go away. Most often, these symptoms are not due to cancer. Other health problems may also cause them. Any woman with these symptoms should tell her doctor so that problems can be diagnosed and treated as early as possible.

I am a 48 yr old , post menapausal female who went in for a spot compression after a bad mammogram...Well my 15 min. spot compression...ended up lasting two hours..They called me back because they found two areas of my right breast that needed further evaluating. I wasn t the least bit concerned up to this point because after all I had done the same routine with my last mammo. But when the tech came back in to tell me that they were contacting my Dr. at home in order to obtain an order for an US...I began to get a little concerned...Then during the US...when the tech went over the exact area that I had noticed a change in...and I could see something myself...looked sort of like an incapsalated pea...then another in area...but I still didn t get too concerned...I knew I had fibrotic breast tissue...still thought it was scar tissue...But when the radiologist herself came in to do another US herself...I started to get concerned...After about 20 minutes of complete silence...I could take it no longer...and started firing questions...Her preliminary findings off the record: She thinks the areas are fibrotic tissue clumping together for some reason in different areas that on mammo even appeared as hair-like folicles...which are also causing the nipple to remain constantly dialated. (Signs that I have noted previously were palpable mass that I have not been able to feel before, puckering in the one area, with darker pigmentation noted, almost appeared as though aerola was extending. Also noticed leakage on at least two prior occasions. Other signs that made me think it wasn/t anything serious was intense, painful sensitivity to temp...especially in frozen food section...like back when I was nursing my babies. Her reccomendation is that I followup in 6 months for a f/u US in order to see if areas are getting any bigger...My question is should I ask for further testing? You see I am an oncology nurse and am most concerned that 6 months may be too long...Any thoughts?

I just had a mammogram and they detected something in it. I have breast implants. This has happened before but it turned out to be nothing first time, this time its different - I have swelling and some pain under my arm. They are sending me to another doctor, I am scared and don't know what to expect.

my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago. she had had a standard mammogram which picked it up. 3 years previous she had a clear mammogram. she couldnt feel any lumps herself, but after the mammogram she was called in to say there was something wrong. she was called in for a biopsy. at the biopsy she was told, that she had at least two tumours in same breast and when they pulled the fluid off that she had cancer. they didnt even need to send it off anywhere to tell her this. she then went for a mastectomy,and they removed her breast and lymph nodes. she was told 22 lymph nodes were cancerous (i dont know how many she had, if any, over and above the 22 ) and it was aggressive. she had chemo then radiation followed by a daily pill (eg. armidex but im unsure). i cant establish the full facts but when she does have a check up they don't take any blood test. she had a premliminay bone scan when diagnosed and was told it wasnt in her bones. she doesnt say much about it,but i have noticed that recently she has left the room feeling sick and my son has told me that she has also been clutching her throat. i really dont have a clue what the prognosis is and am obviously worried

I have had this pain in my left breast for the last few days, I have noticed some changes in the nipple area. I don t feel any lumps in the breast, but the upper area of the breast feels firm in areas. I have had normal mammograms, I am due to have my yearly in August. Should I consult my OB GYN now to have this checked or wait till my next mammogram?
