Question: Lumps in breast


 shabbychic - Mon Dec 17, 2007 3:34 pm

Hello.
I am a lady of 58 years, I am taking synthroid, and Purinethol. I recently have found numerous small pea like lumps in about an inch or two area. They seem to be stuck together. A few years ago I had a lumpectomy for a phylloid tumor. My question is this, Does breast cancer have a special feel to the lumps, as this time it feels different. Should I be worried? Any advice would be appreciated.

User avatar Hi Shabbychic,

"Classic" breast cancer lumps tend to be hard, painless and fixed in place (immobile). Having said that, there are plenty of lumps that don't fit the classic description. If these new lumps that you are feeling are not the typical masses you have felt before I would recommend you have them evaluated. It is always best to be safe and get things checked out.

Best wishes.
