After I gave birth I was taken three days later to get the lump removed for a biopsy. (To see if it was cancerous or not since they had already ruled out if wasn't an infection or anything else.) They ended up removing the whole entire gland. Now have a nice big scar on top of my collar bone.. Sucks because people always point it out and ask "Oh my what happened? Did you get into an accident?? Did someone try to kill you??" It gets annoying but I just tell them "No, Just kicked cancers butt!" lol
