I found a Lump *Update 3*

*Update 3* since they don't do paragraphs and smash it all together..its on top. Its a benign cyst that when it starts bugging me enough, they will try to get the fluid out..OR I will have to have it surgically removed..I said I will see you in 15 years or longer on that one lol. As for the lack of energy..thank goodness its not anything serious..I am vitamin D deficient...and am on prescription strength vitamin D for 3 months..then have to take 1k a day of Vitamin D. Thank you ladies so much for your support...it means a lot.






On the side of my boob, never had one before. I looked it up on the net..it said if it moves around and isn't painful..probably a cyst..well, its grown in a couple days, and it does hurt at times. I have an appointment Tuesday. I have been exhausted lately..6-8 hours of sleep isn't cutting it. I am tired ALL DAY and feel like garbage..and now I am praying its not what I think it is. The Big C doesn't run in my family unless its drug, tobacco or alcohol caused..and that isn't an issue in my life. So yeah...I am worried...and hubby comes in with a horrible attitude. Yes, he's been working 10 hour shifts..driving on the road hours a day..sometimes carpooling..sometimes not. And I flip out because I don't deserve his attitude. So..I am venting, I am stressed, I am scared.

*Update* she says it feels like a fibrous mass, but I am going in for a mammogram tomorrow (my first ever), so we can know for sure. ALSO, because I am tired..I got sent in for a Vitamin D check and a Thyroid check, and some other things that I can't pronounce. A lady had mentioned maybe I should have these checked in an earlier response..I thought they had been included in my Wellness Print..so off to Quest Diagnostics I went..it was painless..but I also had to entertain my 3 year old while I was at it..not so great lol..I am in better spirits..except..I was told no caffeine..and I bargained her down to one cup of coffee a day..did I forget to mention I have big cups? Thank you ladies for your support..will update when I get results!

*Update 2* They couldn't see anything on the mammogram, she even did a special one that isn't for normal mammograms. It wasn't painful..thank goodness. So, I got sent in for an ultra sound, she had a hard time finding it through my tissue..but she was able to get some angles..wouldn't give me any info, which is normal..I should find out in the next few days..which I hope means Friday and not Monday. Thank you all for the words of comfort and encouragement, its been helping a lot.

What kind of cancer is caused by drugs? Alcohol? One in 8 women Who do none of the things that you mentioned are at risk for breast cancer.

My dad died of Cirrhosis of the liver. My grandma had lung cancer. I just meant..cancer doesn't run in our family...I know lots of friends who it does. My phrasing wasn't meant to offend anyone.

Cysts can be very painful, especially if they are growing. I'm thinking its a cyst. Cancer doesn't usually explode with growth over night.

Best of luck to you.

Yeah I had cysts, avoid salt a couple wks before your period and do NOT take midol-the salt/caffeine combo causes cysts! Good luck at the Dr!

Yeah there was a pamphlet in the waiting rm to get my mammogram telling you what to avoid that is known to cause cysts in your breasts,,, I was shocked to see this since I took midol to treat breast pain only to find out that it causes it! It said on the bottle at the time that it treats breast pain. Also I would eat beef jerky before my period/crave salt.

I know how difficult it is to stay calm, believe me, but you must. And your husband is a jerk.
