Kind of confused

I have had what was a small pea sized lump in my breast for close to two years. every doctor that i have been to since has brushed it off until now. FINALLY a GYN that has taken me seriously. This once pea shaped lump is now close to 3-4 cm but very deep. it is movable and i can almost separate it from my breast its about the size of a small plum. Ive had Ultrasounds and a biopsy done. the GYN told me that it was a cyst with Atypical cell growth but didn’t show signs of cancerous,yet. he kept emphasizing that point. Ive been raiding the internet trying to find info and this is the best website i have found!!! I was trying to make an appointment with a breast specialist but all of them have been brushing me off saying they have to wait for all the results (mind you it has been already close to a moth since all the tests have been done) because its not a big deal because im 23. WHAT DO I DO? has anyone experienced this?

and to top it all off the surgeon i was referred to by my GYN was a pediatric surgeon. i made an appointment with another hospital breast surgeon. any suggestions on what i should do next?

My family has no history of breast cancer but my fathers side of the family has a tendency to get a lot of cysts. My mothers side of the family tends to get lymphoma cancer. HEEEELLLLP ME :slight_smile:

9 out of 10 breast lumps are benign, and aged 23 your chances of having breast cancer are low. Atypical cell growth can be a risk factor for breast cancer in later life so worth keeping an eye out. Most cancers happen in women over 50. As for family history, only about 5% of women who get breast cancer have a family history of it so don’t rely on this. There’s no connection between lymphoma and breast cancer. Cysts usually disperse if they are biopsied

Bye for now
