Right breast tender to touch with hard thick area???
mistylynn09 posted:
Hello, I am 31yrs old and have recently found an area on my right breast that is really thick. I noticed this about 3 months ago and it wasn't really bothersome until about a month ago when it became tender 'to the touch. I do my regular exams as I had 4 lumps removed 5yrs ago this April but they were non-cancerous. Thank Goodness! Along with the "hard mass" as I call it, there is a small spot that kind of feels like a lemon seed going into my armpit.
I'm going to my gyno Monday and plan on asking her about it but I don't think I will be taken seriously on the matter due to my age. I am nervous as any woman is and just wondering if this seems normal due to my age?? Any suggestions?

HI mistylynn,
I am glad you are going to your doc on Monday. If you feel you are not taken seriously, get another doctor!!! Any lump or mass should be checked and taken seriously.

Please let us know how you do ~
