Hello, overnight, got a lump in breast that came that I can feel easily. It feels thick and inch wide. This was not here last night when i took my shower. My period starts next week. I am 43. The skin and nipple looks normal. Can cancer lumps grow that fast? No lumps in right breast. Has anyone had experiences with lumps that scared them right before their period.

I remember, 2 years ago, had a lump in right breast near nipple area, which scared me, (but no lumps in left breast) , but it eventually went away.

I dont smoke or drink coffee. I have been eating more chocolate and sugar.

I am very scared and worried. Thanks for reading and any comments or advice.

  • Went to Ob/Gyn yesterday. Dr. thought 95 % sure was a cyst, due to the fact it was palpable and smooth and not irregular. He states cancer lumps are not smooth and grow irregular and dont come around like that overnight. He sent me to have mamogram and ultrasound. Today, had my mamogram and the radiologist definitely wanted to do ultrasound in both breasts. (That scared me somewhat). Had the ultrasound in both breasts after the mamogram and diagnosis was cysts. Boy, was a relieved. I couldn't even feel the cyst in the right breast. Gosh, I am relieved and thank God. This has awakended me. Just never thought this ordeal would put me thru the whirlwind of emotions that it did. I thought about alot of things. :)

  • Thank you so much for posting the update! i'm 19 and i have just found the exact same thing as you, large, hard swelling in my left breast over night. I've been so nervous! But your post has relieved me a little :) I'm still going to go to the doctors for a check up anyway though. Thanks again!
