Lump in my breast
I have a small lump bigger then a pea and semi hard and now it is starting to hurt if I push on it. I have been going to the doctor for this I have had numerous test and the reason they don`t want to go in and take it out is because with all the test they are not really sure what it is. but now it is starting to hurt when I press on it, is this any reason to be concerned.
Often the only way to diagnose a breast lump is to remove it. If that has been recommended, it probably should be done. Alternatively, seek a second opinion from a qualified surgeon that regularly evaluates breast lumps.
