How do you know if?

How do you know for sure if it is something to be concerned about?

Or how do you know the difference?

I think I just felt a lump in my right breast but I'm not sure if it could be from when I had milk and it's those milk mass pockets or if it could possibly be a lump! How do you know for sure?

  • I had a lump in each breast and got an ultrasound. turns out one was just a lymphnode but the other they're not sure. they'd have removed it but I have fake boobs haha. anyway, I think it's better to be safe than sorry so give it just a few weeks. if it hasn't gone away or has grown, go in.

  • btw I have check ups to check that lump every 6 months, so we're not just pretending it isn't there.
