Dear Mloffer,

slow down and tell me ...first of all...how old are you now? how big is the lump in your right breast...is it mobile and runs from underneath your fingers? and what about the axillary lymph node....how big is it?and is it one or more....only in your right axilla or bilateral (in both)?

best regards,
