I felt 3 prominent lumps in my chest last night. They are above my breasts and below my collar bone. They are tender, do not move, and are very hard? I also have a lump in my breast that I was supposed to have a mammogram done on it, but the radiologist wouldn't do it on me because I am so young. Should I worry about these new lumps now? I have also lost 46 lbs in the past 4 months. Even though I have been exercising, I am not beginning to think something else might be happening?Answer Question

Here are where your lumph nodes are located.
Sound like the lymphatic ducts and thoracic lymph nodes are inflammed--meaning fighting infection. Have you had strep throat recently or respiratory illness? Do you smoke? That could be the reason. Regardless, you should see your doctor to rule out anything more seriously--especially if you've never felt lumps like this before (in such locations).

You sure do, there are lymph nodes all over your body. I had a really sore one when I was 16 and I swore I had breast cancer or lymphoma. Thankfully I didn't, but you NEED to get checked out just in case. DEMAND a mammogram, find a doctor that will do it if your regular one refuses. There are a lot of things it could be, good luck!!
