Re: Galactocele? Turned out to be cancer?

Hi,

sorry to jump on your post but I see it was dated June and I’m wondering how you got on and how you are? 
Im going through something similar. 

I’m 25 and breastfeeding my 7 week old. Found a small hard lump in my left breast. Doesn’t move and isn’t painful. I attended the breast clinic last week and had an ultrasound which showed a ‘cyst’ with something solid inside it. They wanted to do a biopsy but said it wasn’t suitable due to lactation so I am currently waiting for the results of a fine needle aspiration. I also breastfed my 2 year old and have never had anything like this before. 

Thank you

Galactocele? Turned out to be cancer?

Had my report back from the breast clinic. Has anyone been told they have a galactocele which turned out to be cancer after biopsies? 

I am hoping I am worrying over nothing. 


my report said I have a 18mm mass, in the left central upper breast, likely to be a galactocele but have requested a further ultrasound and biopsy due to the mass being solid.
2nd of July is my next appointment. 

I am breastfeeding and they wanted to wait to check for any change as they don't like to biopsy when lactating. 
 

If anyone has had anything similar I would like to hear positive or negative stories. So I know what I'm looking at. 

many thanks
