this one's on the left side, it's really big and it's really painful, as in i can't even touch the skin without pain kind of painful. so you can just imagine how the $%@#&)@#$%^* diagnostic mammograms felt today! then i went right in for an u/sound and.....
they don't know what it is.
definitely not a cyst.
could be a mass.
the dr wants to pull all my films going back several years before he makes any recommendation. i have an appt with my surgeon on monday which i am to keep "no matter what", but they may send me for an mri this week now, too.
i noticed this lump a couple of weeks ago but i got lots o' lumps, so i wasn't overly concerned at the time.... but my other lumps went away for the month and this one just got bigger and bigger and then i realized how painful it was. and then it got bigger and more painful, so i went to my dr. last week and that's what started this round of tests. one can even just see that my left breast is bigger, right through clothes and everything now - if one knew to look, that is.
and i have a terrible pain in my lower right abdomen, too. it started last night. if it's not better tomorrow morning i'm calling my primary. it's not bad as i sit here but every step i take with my right foot causes this terrible pain in my belly. appendicitis??? wouldn't that just make my day.
sheesh. welcome 2012.
