      Unfortunately, Infiltrating Lobular Carcinoma (also known as Invasive Lobular Carcinoma - ILC) has the potential to spread or metastasize to other parts of your body. Even though at first these cancer cells are in the lining of your milk lobes, they have the capability to invade or infiltrate the nearby tissue outside the lobes, including the chest wall. It is important to continue to follow-up with your healthcare provider and keep an eye on this possibility.

      Hope this helps!

      Scary, because I just had bilateral mastectomy and my lymph nodes came negative too. But will be scary to find out if I other tissues were affected or will be.

      Benign cysts can be quite painful. Very glad your doctor is seeing you so quickly. Take care, Sharon

      Somethings can cause pain and others not so they probably wanted to get some ideas before seeing you as to what it could or could not be.

      Tumors grow, not shrink. Usually not painful. If you have a lump, get it tested. Prayers to you.

      I did have minor pain with my tumor. You need to go to your doctor and have a physical exam. Probably you will also be sent for a mammo or ultrasound. There is not a way, without further testing, to know if this is a cyst or cancer.
