Hi! I am 31 and just had a US earlier. They said it must be fat (lipoma) because it wasn't seen. If it matches the tissue around it in a US, it isn't bad. I get how you are feeling. @Scaredyoungadult wrote: Hi all I just wanted to update this. So i had my appointment today at the breast clinic. The doctor felt my lump and said its under 1cm oval and seems to move. Said it feels too soft for a fibroadenoma and feels like a lipoma but will have an ultrasound to check and if anything suspicious they'll biopsy. So i had the ultrasound and they couldn't see any thing at all!!! They just said yep all normal can't see anything. Hand this in at reception you're discharged. I'm absolutely over the moon however the fact the lady couldn't see anything at all on the ultrasound has worried me... she was thorough but how can I and the doctor feel the lump but then the ultrasound show nothing? Anyway. The anxiety has been immense and I wouldn't wish the worry on anybody. Thank you all so much for letting me post here and I wish you all the very best xx

I will start with that I am a US citizen and 31, whuch means we pay for our insurance. I put off having a lump looked at for five months due to the out of pocket costs without insurance. I finally broke down and paid $600 for a doctor visit, mammogram, and ultrasound. The doctor and mammo tech both felt the lump. The mammogram showed nothing so I had a US on my entire breast. The US tech struggled to find the lump. Despite the fact it it hurt when it showed up and has been there for months, the radiologist couldn't see anything. A MRI would be $700 and a biopsy would be $2000. They believe it is just fat, but I am anxious. Still, nearly $3000 to confirm a negative would hurt my family.
