    Carrie, it's good you're paying attention to your breasts. Go ahead and wait till your period is over; whatever it is, if it's serious it'll still be there next week... - Best of luck, Carrie. PJH

    Don't ever take a dimple lightly.  My dimple was only when I lifted my arm.  It was very hard to see, and very slight.  I ended up with good doctors who did an open biopsy.  My needle biopsy was "fat necrosis," not cancer.  I felt the lump; it was palpable, like a hard boiled egg. I have invasive lobular carcinoma, and it is in one lymph node.  My mammograms and ultrasounds are still normal.  It did show up on the MRI-BREAST.  PLEASE have any dimples checke out.  Find a breast surgeon specialist who can biopsy it.  Don't play with a dimple, but having an open biopsy, it can save your life, it did mine.  REMEMBER...there are breast cancers that do not show up on mammogram or ultrasound.

    Hi.  I have a similar symptom.  I have a small dimple right above my nipple which is is only there when I raise my arm.  Also, I feel a lump directly under that area right above my nipple.  I had a mammogram and sonogram which were negative although the mammogram shows an increased "clump" of tissue as compared with last years mammo.  My doctor said to wait a month to see if it is still there.  I don't know if I should be worried because nothing suspicious shows up on the films. Also, it it were serious wouln't the dimple be there constantly? Also, I'm 40 and premenopausal and my mother had brest cancer in her sixties.
