  • I had a lump that hurt, and grew from the size of a walnut to the size of a grapefruit. It was biopsied twice, and the 2nd time they went ahead and removed it.

    It was a cyst, thankfully not cancer. I couldn't believe how much better I felt after they removed it.

    Good Luck, I'm sending positive thoughts for you as well.

  • Well, it could either be a cyst or a tumor. However, most likely it's a cyst, especially if you've had pain from it. Cancerous tumors tend to be painless, that's why some people don't catch them early. I've had cysts in my breasts before, and so has my mom. Try not to worry, chances are it's nothing!
