More firmer tissue....
I'm 29, no family history. If you are interested you can take a peek at my post history, this has been going on for a few years now... but the tl;dr is that in one breast I've been noticing the tissue get thicker/firmer than the tissue on the other side. Not a lot, it still feels like normal breast tissue according to the gynecologists and breast specialists who have felt it, but it's noticeable. And i just noticed yet another area of tissue on my breast that has gotten somewhat thicker/firmer than the same tissue mirrored on the other side.
Obviously I am concerned about ILC the most. My gynecologist has felt it and said that sometimes breast tissue just changes overtime for reasons unbeknownst to us and it's benign and that it feels normal to him but he's ordered me two ultrasounds to ease my mind. They all came out normal and the breast specialist docs who were on staff there at the time said it just seems like fibrocystic tissue to them. But the fact that more of it is cropping up is freaking me out... though I suspect I may be pretty estrogen dominant and I know this makes breast changes and fibrocystic breasts more likely to happen.
I know my other options are MRI or biopsy because apparently since I have very dense breast mammography is even less useful for ILC which is what I'm worried about., I see my gynecologist again on Thursday. Just venting I guess. I'm worried of course... it's really scary noticing continuous unilateral changes and being told by breast specialists "sometimes that just happens" with no solid explanation. And I wish I could feel a model of a breast with ILC because I think what I feel is similar to what people describe when they talk about it but of course descriptions of such things can be rather subjective.
I know that my risk is somewhat on the lower side and the risk of ILC is even lower, but that doesn't mean it definitely can't happen. It is really scary and I don't know what to do or think.
