Do I have breast cancer?!?!? Update #1

I noticed Friday morning that my left breast was super sore. It has been sore all weekend and today. This evening as I was putting on my pajamas I noticed a large indentation in the middle of my breast. It is about the length of my index finger and about that wide too...I have not been hit by anyone/thing, I am pretty sure it is not a stretch mark, and I have not switched to a new bra. Has anyone ever had any of these symptoms? If so, what was your diagnosis? I am going to call my doctor in the morning. I'm kinda freaked out and can't sleep.

Well, I went to the doctor on Tuesday and she was like "if you were 50 I'd think cancer, let's get a mammogram and go from there... But since you are 26 I have no idea. A mammogram is not ideal for a 26 year old because there is too much breast tissue."

So I am getting an ultrasound on Wednesday to see what we can see. Then I will probably go to a breast specialist.

I am sure it is nothing .  It is smart to get checked asap.  Usually the lumps will face outwards not make a dent.

I have no idea what it could be. Make sure to consult the doctor, ok? Even if it is nothing, it´s better to make sure. Please keep us updated!

Indentation, like your skin is being pulled in from the inside?
It's definitely gotta be checked out. Have you had a good feel around the area? Use the flat part of your hand and roll around.

Good Luck. Mostly likely its nothing to be worried about.

you could have an infection  in yoru breast it will cause knots and very tender to burning/throbbing like pains at  times too. Some times they go away on their own but its always good to be seen,

I don't know if this is true but I've often heard that the most serious lumps usually aren't painful
