Holy crapola.

I know all of you have seen that post for my breast cancer raising thing....

but can you believe this shit. I know have to go through the waiting to know myself. I found a lump. fu#%$d up. Now I guess I know a little how some women have felt. I find this freakin weird to experience all this only since signing up for the walk. am i paranoid??? Does anyone know what to expect from this point?? wifes, or girlfriends ever delt with this?? and if so.. i would rather hear it from you guys. My husband is good about just say it like it is.. i think thats guys in general. so lets hear it. I know this is personal and freaky and we are talking about tits here... but I feel pretty helpless.

Found one once. Just go in, take the tests, and TRY TRY TRY not to worry until you hear back. There is such a positive outlook for early detection.

hey relax. My wifes doctor found something on her and the doctor said come back in a month and we'll look at it again. (i think it was cus my wife had just had that tit exray thing the year prior so the doc wasn't to worried) well we went back and the doc said it didnt grow so she thinks it was just hormones. (to our relief)

You ladies have such bad hormone issues that you can even grow extra parts. Well i'm sure yoru ok (hope so). But if you check your self a lot and you just found it it's pretty treatable.

My mother in law is dealing with that (too late for her) but it was cus she didnt do anything about it right away. ( let it go for months, plus shes old)

So just go to the doc and let him/her tell you that its nothing!

ps. I'm not a doctor but i do free breast examinations. Call me.

If you have a history of breast cancer in the family you have room for some concern. The key is to catch it early.

No history and no risk factors and you are probably ok.

I have a number of friends, that have lots of lumps in their breasts, most of them are fibrous (sp?) and as long as your doing monthly or weekly exams to make sure there is NO change in the size or shape of them, you should be okay. I would cut out caffeine and if your on the pill, try a different method of birth control, of course if you smoke, stop, eat healthy, get plenty of exercise, eat your fruits and veggies, cut down on red meat.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

I know this will sound so blase' but its true. You TRULY CAN and WILL make yourself sick thinking the worse. You can NOT change ANY outcome till you know what it is. The best advice i can give is to seriously sit down by yourself and have an understanding that "yes i do have a lump, it is part of life, there is nothing i can do right now, and i will do whatever i can when i find out what it is."

Prayers do mean a lot and they may help you. We will say a little prayer for you as well!

i agree with the others, here by saying relax, and dont make yourself worried sick over it to much, find out what comes back and deal with it strongly. dont ever give up, no matter what the outcome could be..and ALWAYS get 3-4 opinions on any matter.

i hope and i am sure all will be well, and i too will say a prayer for you.

good things happen

my mom had a tumor on her brain and spinal cord they said she would not live through surgery, she did they said she would not be very normal to much damage, she is as normal as before, they said it would come back, 3 years later it has not, so prayers work and worry about what you can CONTROL NOT WHAT YOU CANT!!!!
BEST OF LUCK hope this helps

I'm sure you will be fine, but I'm wishing you good karma.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Breast Lump

I deal with this on a professional level almost daily. Most masses are either related to your menstrual cycle (cystic) or are fibroadenomas (benign/non-cancerous masses).

Most importantly stop feeling the mass. Repeated manipulation can cause tenderness and irritation of the site. Self breast exams are only suppose to be done once a month (because you are looking for changes from the previous month) and between day 5-7 of the cycle (when hormones are less likely to effect the breast tissue).

Depending on where you are in your cycle your doctor may tell you to come back at the appropriate time in your cycle to re-check the mass or you will be sent for a mammogram. If the mammogram does not show anything and the mass is palpable, an ultrasound of the breast is next.

If you are on a hormonal birth control, do not stop until you are seen and evaluated.

If I can help in any other way, do not hesitate to ask.

My prayers are with you.

I told my self I would tell a lot of people, but I once found a lump in my chest too and I'm a guy. I had surgery just after Tony's wedding. It was no big deal, but guys can get this too. It's not just a girl problem.

Please let us know what the doc says, and the tests. Michelle (SportChic) covered it VERY well, so there ain't much I can add medically. But I'll keep you in my prayers.
