I just arrived home from a whirlwind of appointments today. I found this site on my phone while I was waiting to have my ultrasound and I can tell you that reading the comments from so many other women in the same boat as I am in was REALLY REALLY comforting! I felt a lump in my left breast that was sore and I was really feeling it after I shoveled some snow. I called my doctors office yesterday, got an appointment today where he felt the lump but thought it was a swollen lymph node, he got me an immediate appointment at the breast center attached to the hospital where I had a mammogram followed by an ultrasound. All of this was within a three hour span of time. Thank GOD I was told to "take my boring breasts and go home" because the results were absolutely normal. I can't imagine the torture of waiting months like some of the women here; I was a mental wreck for the few hours I had to go through this. All I can say is if your doctor is not taking this seriously, find a new doctor! Even though mine said he was pretty sure it was just a lymph gland he said he wouldn't ever diagnose that without further testing.
