      Breathe. If it is something they have caught it, if its nothing then you would be stressing for not. This is all scary. Prayers to you. And a big hug.

      Cate,
      So you already have learned you have breast cancer. This other lesion shows up with an ultrasound but NOT with MRI. The following describes how my cancerous tumor looked on an MRI. It lit up like a Christmas tree light bulb. It was was so bright, I swear is was clearly visible from Mars! Cancerous tumors absorb the contrast dye injected into you. That is how they are detected and show so well on an MRI. It doesn't sound like this is a cancerous lesion. I WOULD ask for a biopsy but could this just be a non-cancerous cyst and they are calling it a "lesion"? I would be climbing into the backseat of their car until they told me what that thing was. Of course.... that's just hysterical me. You have to be your own best advocate so go get them darlin' and ask for a clarification. Blessings.... take care, Sharon

      What age u r? If this problem is repeat every months I do not think it is due to cancer ,it is hormonal.If u have intolerable pain may be u have some benign masses in your breasts ,therefore I recommend u to check it with your doctor.If u r under 35 years old it is better to check them with US.

      No but my doctor said it is good to not wear them at night, it can also affect growth.

      Vivian's, there are boatloads of statistics out there but no one can really predict the future. According to statistics, I should never have got breast cancer....here I am six years down the road from treatment. My oncologist told me to live my life to the fullest and leave the worrying about my health to him. I follow up on my check ups, now, every six months. It is difficult at this point for you to not be overly focused on this lousy disease. The further away from treatment, you are able to not worry about it as much. Worrying about it coming back won't make it stay away....it will just cause stress in your life. Even if you do have a reoccurrence, that doesn't mean that's the end of the road. We have many women who have reoccurrence's and are treated. Love the life you have, make every day count, try not to put a dark cloud on those days. Blessings to you. Take care, Sharon
