I noticed changes in my breast last year at the age of 34 so i went for my first mammogram. I was diagnosed after a mammogram and sonogram with a benign lesion that was probably from the result of a hard hit to the breast. I was told that i had fibrous tissue also. My right nipple had been in verting for some time but no aparent discharge.and now 7 months later I have found a lump on the side of the same breast with the lesion almost under the arm. It is of course almost time for my menstraul cycle. Would that be the cause of three lump? It feels more like a cyst type lump not hard. I have heard where around that time of the month at my age i will start to see things that will come and go close to menstraul cycles. Is that correct?I can sqeeze my nipples and a small drop of whitish clear discharge comes from both of my breast. Oh yes by the way I had a tubaligation performed at 30after my second child.

  • Fibrocystic changes happen in EVERY woman and they are totally normal. I just recently had a lump I was concerned about and was told that it was likely a cyst (we could have done and ultrasound to confirm it). It was very tender around my period, but is not so much now that I am not on it. We are watching it to see if it fluctuates with my menstral hormones. Usually pain is not cancer. The only thing that I would be concerned about is the nipple inversion. I would suggest that you go have an MRI done, they just came out with recommending screening using MRI, it might put your mind at ease.http://www.imaginis.com/breasthealth/nipple.asphttp://www.breastcancer.org/testing_mri.html

You would be second guessing by other's opinions here. You need a dr's opinion, not the general public's.lymphatic system
