do they always have to be round like a marble or oval like a grape? Or can they also be somewhat flat.

I have something in my breast that is somewhat flat with round edges, it moves freely, but reminds me of a blister.

Like if I burned myself on grease, I'll get a bubble blister on my skin, you can feel the too and sides, but can't the bottom because it's your skin.

Any advice?

I have been dealing with the same thug and have also described it as feeling like a blister. Did you find anything out on this?

hey! No unfortunately I never got answers, I'm still dealing with it. I have seen my gyno twice, breast surgeon twice, had a mammogram and an ultrasound. Everyone says it's normal tissue.

I believe I have fibrocystic condition without the cysts. The ultrasound didnt reveal anything at all besides dense, lumpy tissue. When I asked my gyno what it was, she said our breasts are comprised as lobes and sometimes they are more pronounced.

From my research, the best I can figure is its hyperplasia of my lobes. I have a couple areas in both breasts like that but just one area that's larger. No one would ever do a biopsy because they said theres nothing to biopsy. I'm just trying to live with it and pray they are right.
