The lump in my breast has stopped hurting but the lump has gotten bigger. the radiologist told me that there was nothing on the mammogram. my OB/GYN says there is clearly somthing but the tissue is too dense to see. I am going to the surgeon and was wondering if there was anything i should think to ask him about this lump.
Jenny, you should ask for an MRI to ascertain just what the lump is. MRIs are a great screening tool for younger women with dense breasts. Understand that MRIs are notorious for producing "false positives" - they'll reveal things in your breast that LOOK like cancer, but aren't. So there's the possibility of having a biopsy that comes back benign. But in my opinion, if you have a growing lump in your breast, you should find out exactly what it is, and the sooner the better. Good luck - PJH
