hello, I found a lump about 2 months ago. I told my doctor and ordered for a mammogram. Got the results back and the doctor said it was a large mass, but because I’m breastfeeding it makes it hard to know if it’s of concern. So he requested for a biopsy to be done. Waited to hear a call back to get a biopsy done but then I get a call from the doctor and they told him there were no lesions and no need to have a biopsy done. Now I’m not even sure if I should press for one to be done? Can you have a lump and know it’s not cancer or benign by not having any lesions?

Thanks for any advice and knowledge!

saeseven I was under the impression that it is difficult to obtain an accurate reading from a mammogram when you are breastfeeding. Do you still feel the lump ? I would recommend a consult with a breast specialist as you have been getting conflicting communications. I would also make sure that you actually see and read the radiologist assessment from your mammogram.

I do still feel the lump, and after going back to my second appointment the doctor said they will follow up in 6 months with another scan. He said there’s nothing there but breast tissue, even though I feel this lump still. Thank you for your reply, I’m going to request for a specialist appointment, by the time the 6 month wait is over I’ll probably get in with someone by then

saeseven1986, could you request an ultrasound? That might get a clearer picture of the lump. The ultrasound techs are usually good about calling in the radiologist to take a look if there is anything questionable.

Keep us posted.
