I have had a red spot on my left breast for over a month and have taken antibiotics for 2 weeks with no response. Last week my lymph nodes under my arms have gotten very swollen and hurt! My left breast is so swollen I can no longer wear a bra. Both my mammogram and ultrasound show nothing. I plan to get a biopsy next. Is it a safe bet to biopsy the red spot or can the cancer lurk elsewhere

Hi Pisces, so glad the Friends bloopers helped and that the MRI went smoothly. Usually the imaging place won't want to give you the results over the phone, so don't be surprised if that happens. They want a doctor to tell you (although the family practice PA could give you the results over the phone possibly).

I'm re-watching Friends right now! Even though I know what they're about to say because I've seen them so many times, I still laugh! :D

I was thinking the imaging place probably wouldn't give results over the phone. Monday is just a few days away so I'm good with waiting till then. Btw if you get a chance to watch the Friends Blooper with Ross playing the bagpipe there is a bit where Pheobe starts singing with the bagpipe. It is hilarious! She does a pretty good job of harmonizing with the bagpipe too! Such a great show! Will never tire of Friends! :)

I got my MRI results today and the findings were :T1 hyperintense fluid/blood noted within ducts and .4 cm intramammary lymph node. Otherwise no suspicious enhancement. No enlarged adenopathy. This is a great relief. Not sure what caused the hyperintense fluid/blood within ducts and I guess they are not concerned with .4 cm intramammary lymph node. I am just glad it was ruled out. Thanks so much for all the help and advice during this stressful time. Also, thanks for the advice on watching Friends. It's a great stress releaser! Sending hugs!

Did you have a biopsy? That could explain the fluid/blood within the ducts.

Hello,

Pardon delay. I never received a biopsy. I have heard that fluid/blood could indicate menopause. I don't if you have heard of this. I am hoping that is the case and it is nothing to worry about. Greatly appreciate your input!
