Learning About Breast Cancer
I am so grateful I found you strong ladies. For months I have had this odd, dull, aching sensation in the upper left side of my chest, right above my breast. 2 months ago I had a lymph node bulge out of my neck on the left side and never really put two and two together. Then about a month ago I was rubbing my chest where it ached and felt a lump. When I pressed on the lump, it made the side of my neck and under my arms ache. After seeing the physician last week, he confirmed he too felt the lump and swollen lymph nodes in my arm pit. They did a mammogram on Wednesday and said that everything was clear, no lumps, no nodes, no ultrasound needed. I asked them, how the heck can I have a lump there, that you can feel, the doctor can feel and I can feel and yet the mammogram says no lump? After reading these comments when I go back for the results of blood work, I will be advocating for an ultrasound and MRI if I have to pay myself!!!
