Hi Hun did you have good news or bad news regarding the strange lump? I’m going through the same thing now, no one knows what it is, isn’t really showing much on ultrasound but is a really large lump!! So so scared. Waiting for biopsy!
Hi CHRC, My original lump was palpable but didn't show on any imaging and turned out to be fat.
My cancer was found by accident by the radiographer doing the Ultrasound but couldn't be felt or seen on mammogram.
Not all breast lumps are cancerous and not all breast cancers are lumps, a biopsy is the only way to find out for certain as sometimes they are left wondering if they have missed something and investigate further, trust me if it Is cancer you will be so glad they did!
No not had an MRI yet. The appointment never seems to get any closer - still 4 sleeps! Mind you I must have worked that out at least 10 times today. I was feeling OK about it, but time gives you time to think. My first lump was diagnosed as nothing during the ultra sound. My second, I was told they were certain I had cancer but then changed their minds once the biopsy results came in. Is this 3rd time unlucky? Keep wondering what tissue disturbance means. They must get your results before your appointment, surely they don't just see them the same day they give them you don't they?
Hi CHRC, I had a similar situation to you. I had a dimple in my breast and was referred to the hospital To cut a long story short, I had extremely dense breast tissue and although had two tumours which were seen on US, mammogram and MRI there was a third ( and the biggest) tumour which had gone undetected.
Have you had an MRI? That can detect difficult to see tumours.
i had surgery, chemo and rads and I'm pleased to report that I feel completely well now and hopefully it's all behind me.
fingers crossed it all turns out to be nothing serious for you
I found my 3rd lump in 16 years a week ago last Friday. It is very obviosly there and easy to feel. GP sent me for test. Went last Thursday. Consultant can clearly feel it and orders mammogram and ultrasound but didn't think a biopsy would be needed. Mammogram done, then wait for ultrasound (all at same appointment). Consultant doing ultrasound can also feel the lump, but says it doesn't show on the mammogram and can't see it on the screen. She actually says "if I hadn't felt it then I would say you didn;t have one!". Says all she can see is some disturbance in the tissue so does 3 biposies. Back to consultant who says its strange and they are not happy with the ultrasound. End result could be something or nothing. Get results a week on Tuesday. Has anyone one else had this?
