Benign lymph node found w/ mammo & ultrasound
I take premerin & have for 3-4 yrs now,my mind is playing with me. I have a follow up 6 months, I know that benign is good but Scared because of ignorance of not really understanding what to expect and my fear is cancer , the node is on the left side not under the arm pit but on chest wall area does that mean problems?
This does not sound concerning. Mammogram and ultrasound are pretty good, and "benign" means non-cancerous. Lymph node on the chest wall is a little unusual but not worrisome.
