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?

My right breast nipple is turning white. I do have some pain with it. There is no discharge. My mammogram came back negative. My PCP did a breast exam and she found nothing. She wants me to see a surgeon to double check me and make sure there is no cancer.
I am 58 and haven t had a mammogram for 10 years. I had lumps removed (fibroadenoma) at 17 and 44 years old. I had mammogram recently and found clustered microcalcifications in both breasts (birad4) I was asked to get biopsy. The surgeon also found a lump. Long story short both lump and calcs came out benign. However, I am concerned about my life in future. Should I get mastectomy to stop worrying about getting BC?
I am 41 years old. I had a tubal ligation in 8/2009. I had a mis period last month, so im now on 41 days with no period. My breast feel sore and have on and off headaches, and slight ovaries discomfort. I recently had a mammogram (3 wks ago) and a pap smear (1 wk ago) i was told by my obgyn that on the computer notes it showed that i needed a referral for an ultrasound because of the mamogram. i never received a call nor a letter from the place i got my mamo done, to let me know what my byrad score was. i contacted my primary doc to request a refferal for the ultrasound. they when ahead and schedule me, however my appt is not until june 30th. is this something to be alarmed by. I just thought it was too long before I could know whats going on. My questions is could this be signs or pre-menopause or maybe ealry stage of cancer ? I don t believe pregnancy, correct? please reply
Hi, I have been suffering from erosive gastritis for 2 years now. My attacks sometime lasts for hours and I get my attack almost everyday. Antacids don t seem to take effect most of the times. I sweat alot and cannot speak when I get my attack. I have done a number of test from endoscopy, blood test to heterophile antibody test, which all came back negative. They just say that I have a few ersoions in my stomache. I have taken all sorts of medications from esomoprezole for almost a year, to ranitidine , pylokit. I am taking vitcofol injection (10 shots), sanofide, emanzen, rabeprazole , zenpride, ofloxacin at the moment but It doesn t seem to help. My right breast (rib cage) hurts first and the pain spread around back. I asked the doctors why right breast hurts but they say it is not related to my erosive gastritis, but whenever I get the attack, my right breast hurts the most. I had my gal bladder removed a few years ago.
