Since that lump in your armpit is gone, that really isnt a symptom. If it were, it would still be there. So you get let that concern go.
Lumps in breast is really doesnt sound worriesome because breasts are lumpy. It's when A new and distinctive lump shows up that it needs to be checked out.
Has your right breast normally fuller than the left? If you are right handed, it should be. Breasts are not symmetrical. One is always fuller. It's only if this is a new finding that it needs to be checked out.
I've gone over all your posts and what I do get is that you havent been aware of what is normal for your breasts....I'm betting that now you have looked a paid a ateention you are noticing what ids normal for you.
Nothing you have wriiten is what I would call "symptoms of breast cancer". I would call it normal breasts for a 44 y/o woman.
Since you have never had a baseline mammogram before, it's good you went and had one. It will give them a baseline, plus it will give them a chance to see if anything needs a closer look.
When new women come here I often use the analogy of what kind of flags are being raised---a red flag for serious cocern---a yellow flag for a semi-concern.
From what you have wriiten, I wouldnt even say that you have raised a flag, red or yellow.
Let's now wait and see what your mammo shows.
Thus far, there is nothing you haven written is saying "breast cancer concern"...Nothing.
Nov. '10 Mammo,U/S, MRI showed suspicious 9mm x15mm mass . Jan '11 Biopsy Dx-ed a PASH tumor (rare, but benign tumor)....All I ask is for peace and serenity to the depths of my soul. Makes the rest of life more live-able.
