I'm so scared going for my 2nd breast ultrasound :(

Ok so two months ago to be exact  October 10th I went for my first mammogram and breast ultrasound . The reason I went is because I get some pain under my left arm, no lumps or anything. Well the mammogram as far as the Radiologist is concerned is fine but the Ultrasound she noticed that the area of pain is my lymph node. The report says that it's normal in size and everything and that its a probable benign reactive lymph node to follow up shortly 4 to 8 weeks after. Well tomorrow I go for my follow up and I'm terrified I'm so scared, I know I shouldn't be until they give me something to worry about but it's hard. I'm 31 years old, I did have an ultrasound for the same reason about 4-5 years ago but that one was completely normal. I have since October stopped wearing deodorant as much as I use to, I now wear baby powder it has felt better but I still get a little pain and the feeling of it being a little swelled but it doesn't look swelled. Have any of you experienced this before? If so what was the outcome it would really help me out quite a lot to hear of your experiences..... I am married 15 years and a mother of three 13, 9, and 2. I could use all the support I get get right now :(

I went today and the radiologist told me that it just looks like a reactive lymph node to follow up in six months. I'm really scared though Like what if they are missing something? I know I need to calm down but sometimes it's hard. Thank u for asking

It's always hard living on fear. You can always go for a second opinion. Try to remember none of us know our future so you just need to try and live one day at a time through those 6 months and just monitor for any changes that may arise. Keep in touch. :)
