Recently I have had some issues in the breast area, it appears that I may have lumps. I am don't know what to feel about this. Originally I thought it was just in my mind but since the nagging pain didn't go away for 3 weeks I finally went to the doctors. Even though neither of us could feel the lumps, I was sent for an ultrasound anyway. It appears it is not all in my mind and if I had any doubt about it, I soon realised when I got home how sore I actually was after the ultrasound. After talking to my sister in-law who found she had many cysts at the start of the year, I am tending to believe what she tells me until further notice, that cysts hurt, cancer doesn't. I don't know how true it is but I don't have that much breast tissue to get rid of so am hoping she is indeed correct.

I will get the results tomorrow and will keep you updated

All the best Sue. I have heard the same thing that you dont feel cancer.

You're right cancer doesn't hurt. Good luck!

Your sister in law is probably right, and cysts are really common. I had one a few years back and it didn't even need any treatment, just went away all by itself.

Still worries you though... fingers crossed everything is OK fo ryou.
