Hello everyone my name should be Big Chicken:

I have been experience a burning and pain in my breast for two years. I went to the doctor and he felt for a lump and did not find one and suggest a Mammagram but of course I was too scared to go. He thought I suffered from a Cysts something that when close to menastration I experience this. I can't even tell where the pain is coming from in my breast. I just can take two Advill and it goes away. Sometimes if I take a deep breath or drink something cold, I can feel it in my breast. Does anyone have any knowledge of this kind of burning in the breast..

I know you all think I am stupid for not having the MAmogram but I prefer to spend my last days living and not in Chemo and worrying but I am worrying any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  • Don't worry no one on here thinks you are stupid or crazy. We are all scared. The burning could be many things but I don't believe it is cancer because cancer does not hurt for two years, by now you would have been very sick. Cancer only hurts when it its advance stages.

  • I am experiencing the same thing. I'm thinking about going to the doctor real soon. I guess I'm scared because my mother passed away last year from breast cancer and that has been something I'm dealing with. So, I don't think your crazy.

  • That's the thing I'm not trying to wait until it starts hurting. I want to find asap. My mother was in her advanced stages when she found out because it was not determined by a lump.

  • I also have been having a burning in my right breast and like you all i am scared. I lost my sister/best friend 2 years ago after she lost her 12 year fight against breast cancer. My mother and both her sisters are breast cancer surviors. I have mammogram/ultrasound on tuesday. On a good note my mom and aunts never had any burning in their brest. The nurse at ann baroco center told me that we may know what the burning is not on tuesday but we may never know what it is . Good luck ladies and get the mammograms. Hope to see you at mall to mall walk on the 30 of this month. Dawn
