Breast Lump

I found a lump in my armpit but now its smaller.Well this morning I decided to do a self breast exam.About maybe 8 (cant remember for sure) years ago I found a lump in my right breast.After a mammo they still couldnt determine anything so I had top have a lumpectomy.It was neg.I found a lump this morning in the right breast.The thing is its under the same spot where they took out the other lump.Do you think it could just be scar tissue?I never noticed it before when i did exams but maybe I just didnt notice it.

  • I would suggest an ultrasound, they give better pictures than mammagrams. Might be needed if you have scars and past issues.

  • What about it just being scar tissue?It feels like a hard little lump but its right in the same spot.
