Upsetting Discovery

Over a year ago I had a Mammogram that showed I have a cyst in my left breast. They also did a Sonogram that showed that the milk ducts were leaking into the breast tissue causing the cist. Now mind you, they didn't recommend drainage of the cyst or anything else. I have been diligent is doing a breast exam every month since that discovery for any changes and last night at 11:45 pm; while doing one, I felt a lump in the armpit just to the left of the breast. I don't know if it has anything to do with the cyst or if it's something altogether different, so I called the doctor this morning and I can't get in until next Tuesday at 3pm. Needless to say, after finding that lump, I haven't been to sleep yet. Along with my other medical issues, this is all I need to add to the list. Geez!!! Somebody just shoot me will ya?!

Try not to stress about this, this is quite surly tied up to the cyst.

That's what I'm thinking @LadyDuck . I just hope that if it is, it can be removed with no problem.

@nanette64 So true, cysts can be removed easily.

Let us hope it is some thing connected with the cyst. We have to wait till Tuesday and see what the doctor says.

And this waiting is frustrating and scary @silvermist . Even when I see him on Tuesday, I may have to undergo other tests and won't know those results right away. That's even worse.

I can imagine how you must be feeling Nanette, I wish you all the best. I know it's useless telling you to try not to worry, but please get some sleep at least

Just glad you will be getting this checked out. Hopefully, it will be something to do with the cyst or perhaps it is merely just another cyst.

Oh you're nowhere near the point of needing to be shot. Yet!!! I hope it is all completely innocent. Keeping everything (apart from vital stuff) crossed!!

@nanette64 I'd rather not cross the vital stuff. I don't want anything vital dropping off due to restricted blood flow!!!

My grandma had a lump in her arm pit and they found that it was a reaction to a cat scratch on her arm. Hopefully yours is not serious. I know that not knowing and having to wait will be awful

I guess I could point to the lump and ask the 12 cats, "Okay, who did this?" Tampa_girl7
