A month ago I had an ultrasound and was told I have a swollen lymph node in my right breast and one in my right armpit. I had been experiencing an achy right breast for a few months prior to this, and had found a movable small lump (the lymph node).
I have had no infection, etc, and a month later the lymph nodes are still swollen and the breast and sometimes, armpit, are achy. I am extremely worried due to having used what was imo a carcinogenic medication (Spironolactone).
Ultrasounds are something like 85% accurate in diagnosing, is this right?
I'm thinking I will go to my GPs tomorrow and ask to be re-referred to the breast clinic, and ask for a Core Biopsey. What do you think? I'm mainly incredibly worried due to the Spironolactone. Surely a Core Biopsy is the only way to get a definate answer re whether or not it is breast cancer, or am I being unnecessarily anxious?
The breast lymph node is also in the upper outer quadrant, where 45% of breast cancer occurs.
