    Sounds very much like cysts. Please read our post on fibrocystic change, and on breast lumps - I think you'll find both of those very helpful. Good luck - PJH

      Did the nurse tell you what they are? Fibroadenomas, perhaps? They're explained in the post on fibrocystic change I pointed you to. If you still have these painful lumps after a month (one complete menstrual cycle), then you might want to go back and ask that you be tested until it's determined what's causing them. They don't sound at all like breast cancer, but perhaps they're treatable - if you can figure out what they are. Good luck - PJH

      If it's fibrocystic change, there's no evidence that it turns into cancer; but it can be very uncomfortable. Lots of little lumps sonds like something that might be treated with hormone therapy of some kind, or drugs, rather than surgery. It wouldn't make sense to have to go in and remove a whole series of small lumps. At any rate, you might want to get a second referral from a breast specialist at some point, if you're not satisfied with your next appointment with your current doctor. Hope this resolves itself soon - PJH
