Scared - Numbness and Elarged Vein
I can't stop shaking. I am so scared. In January I noticed a large section of my right breast felt different - completely numb with tingling on the out edge of the area. Over the past month I have noticed two veins leading to the numb area have become more prominent. I had a mammogram in January and am now waiting for my MRI (scheduled for Monday). Has anyone had similar symptoms? Can numbness be a sign of cancer? I have a history of breast cancer on both sides of my family. Any suggestions on how to cope with the waiting for test results? I have been waiting for a month to have my MRI. My primary care doctor keeps saying there is no reason to be concerned because my mammogram was normal. The only reason why my doctor agreed to order an MRI is because I have extremely dense breasts and a > 20% risk for breast cancer.
