    I have had the sensation similiar to breast milk coming in but have not breast fed in over 4 years.  Any thoughts.  I am going in for a lumpectomy next week because my 1 year of tests have always been inconclusive.  Two lumps will be removed and tested.  The milk sensation recently started so I am curious about that.

    I'm wondering, the tests you describe as inconclusive - were they biopsies? Generally a biopsy will show pretty certainly whether cells are cancerous or not. The symptom you describe sounds very hormonal, as is the sensation of breast milk coming in. You could be having hormonal fluctuations, which can lead to benign breast lumps; what you describe doesn't sound like a cancer symptom, so I hope you won't worry too much while you're waiting for your lumpectomy. Best of luck, and I hope things turn out well for you - PJH

      I had two MRI biopsies on one lump that they believe to be benign.  I had an exisional biopsy on another lump that was inconclusive because they did not get the area they targeted.  I just never had the sensation before.  I got a second opinion and they strongly recommend they come out.  So we shall see.
