okay...i've known about this for a while, and talked to all of the most important people about it, so i kind of feel like i can post it without anyone feeling like i didn't tell them first
i want it recorded somewhere that i can always refer back to and recall exactly what happened and when...
from oct. 18:
a couple months back, i felt lump in my left breast...(hard to describe it as a lump, 'cus it really feels long and skinny...kind of like i swallowed a tootsie roll that ended up in the wrong place)
...anyway, when i noticed it, i brought it up to my ob/gyn, and he said it was probably poly-cystic(?) breasts (common), and to watch it with my cycles
so i did, and it's still there, so i had him check it at my appointment last week (10/11), and he got a strange look on his face (not good, if you know my ob) and said he was going to schedule me for a breast ultrasound (and a mammogram if ness.)
...he didn't think it was anything (i'm only 29 and no history of BREAST cancer...OVARIAN cancer - YES, BREAST cancer - NO...in my family)...but he wanted to check it anyway
...so i had the ultrasound on monday and the nurse sent the images to the radiologist...he said he didn't think a mammogram would show anything due to my age (thank god, because i've heard mammograms hurt more the larger you are, and i've got some big boobies!)
my appt. was at 2:30, i got home at 3:30, and my ob/gyn called my at 4:15!
...he said i have a 1.3cm mass that is very rounded (usually a good sign...generally means benign (sp?)...) and that we had 2 courses of action...
1. i could have it removed
2. we could wait 6 months to track it
...and my ob said "i want it out!"so i have a consult with the surgeon on the 30th, and i'm going crazy waiting until then...
