    Small bump in right healthy breast?pea size

    Has anyone else gone thru this. This is my second time. Last time the bump was smaller and in the same general area and they found it to be noncancerous...now this time it feels bigger and I notice more when I touch the breast laying down. I have an email into my oncologist..Do women sometimes get these? what are they if not cancer? any info welcome..Im kind of freaking out...
    I finished my chemo and treatment in October 2015. Had a left single masectomy and tissue expander surgery in 2016. Any stories /info welcome...thanks.

      I'm not a med pro, only a breast cancer survivor. A few years before my diagnosis I had a lump removed from my left breast (the breast in which I eventually got cancer, unrelated to the first lump). That first lump was an adenoma, I think, which is benign). Perhaps that's what you had before and now again.

      I hope your oncologist and your breast surgeon can see you very soon and allay your fears. We are all scared of recurrence.

      Please let us know how you are.

      I had a biopsy aftermy first mammogram at age 40 and it was a benign calcification. At age 59 a mammogram showed a spot which thunder out to be invasive breast cancer. Have a biopsy to put your mind at rest.
