      My port was placed at the same time as my mastectomy. The area was sore for a while. I know some women get it placed and have chemo the same day. I've had it for 2 years now, and don't even know it's there. Prayers to you.

      Lumps are common but if they are new,get them checked. There is no way to tell what they are without getting them checked by your doctor.

      You need to make an appointment with your doctor and get them checked. Some testing may need to be done to determine what they are.

      I have to say that I do believe stress is a huge factor in my getting breast cancer. My husband and I lost our company, then our jobs and then our home in 2009.

      Although some studies have shown that factors such as traumatic events and losses can alter immune system functions, these studies have not provided any evidence of a direct cause-and-effect relationship between stress and breast cancer. An area currently being studied is whether or not stress reduction can improve immune response and slow progression in women diagnosed with breast cancer.

    I have a lump on my breast - could this mean I have breast cancer? It itches a lot sometimes. What else could this lump be?

      The lump can be a fibrous tumor, a cyst, or cancerous. I would get it checked out just to be safe.
