Breast Cancer

Abnormal mammogram



my mother has had an abnormal mamogram, she then had another mamogram, scan & biopsy, which showed a lump which had already grown since the initial mamogram, she did,nt feel any lums or feel any pain, does this sound like cancer?


Certainly a mass that seems larger when additional mammograms are performed could be cancer, even your mother can't feel a mass. Your mother should discuss any concerns with her physician.
