Comment from: rena, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: February 19

I am a 54 year old woman , who had a hysterectomy in 2006 from oversized fibroids. In the meantime I have had a lump in my left breast, which I found in 2007. I have had mammograms and ultra sounds. The doctors say it is nothing. This year I found a new doctor. After a mammogram was done she asked for an ultra sound and a digital. In the end I had to have an MRI. After much discussion, we decided to have the lump removed. It is too far back to just have it drained by needle, and it is solid and in a very suspicious area in the back of the breast. I have decided to go ahead and have the surgery this coming Tuesday. My doctor suggests, it may not be cancer. They will be able to do a quick biopsy before sewing me up, but if it is, it will be caught at in early enough stage, where I will hopefully see my great grandchildren grow. I will keep all updated on what has been found.
