Sebaceous cyst that erupted under left breast on bra line
Back in May, I went for my yearly mammogram. I was called back because they wanted additional films of my left breast. Had the mammogram and an ultrasound. At that time, the Radiologist told me that he did not see any signs of cancer, and the area that they were concerned about was benign. He recommended that I come back in 6 months for a follow up. In the meantime, I found this tiny lump under my left breast, right on the bra line. I had an event to attend, and unfortunately, all my bras have underwires. I was hesitant about wearing it, so I put a few band-aids over the bump. A few days later, I noticed that the area was starting to get red and swollen. I got an appointment with my OBGYN, and he told me it was a tiny cyst, not to worry, it was not cancer. He told me to see a breast specialist/surgeon for peace of mind. I called their office, and the doctor wanted me to get another ultrasound. I explained to them that the area was red and swollen. The doctor prescribed an antibiotic because she felt that It was becoming infected. A few days after that, the cyst grew in size, and it looked like an infected sack with a white tip on the end of it. It finally burst, and drained itself. When it was completely healed, I went for the ultrasound, and everything was fine. No signs of cancer. Now I have to go back for another mammogram in November just as a 6 month follow up. If they keep telling me that there is no cancer, why would I have to go back for another mammogram? I would assume it is because they want to be sure that there are no changes to the area. I have been so stressed out since May. I can't wait until I can get passed this.
