    Well folks. It seems that this month has been a great one for new stuff to pop up. One of my breasts was tender at a spot so I did a self-exam. I found a lump as well as a lump in my underarm area. I'm gonna check it again after my period comes this month and if it's still there I guess I'll have to call my OB/GYN. Blah!

    Honey, please don't wait. You need to get it checked out soon.It is probably nothing serious, but please take it seriously anyway.

    You just never know. It is better to be safe than sorry.
    I wish you the best. Please let us know what you find out.

    I am not trying to scare you, but you really do need to get checked out.

    Hugs from (((cathugs)))

    A breast lump occuring around the menstrual cycle is generally fibrocyctic disease. A lump in the axilla is not related to fibrocyctic disease. Sometimes an infection in the breast can cause a lymph node in the axilla to enlarge. I absolutely would see your doctor as soon as it possible.

    Early detection is the key. Get it checked out, no matter what the cause. I think we sometimes get too complacent here, chalking everything up to FM/CFS as we all have such weird, seemingly disconnected symptoms. But you need it checked out for your own peace of mind, I wouldn't delay. Good luck!

    Agree with all

    Most likely it is cyst, BUT, it it checked now. Why put yourself through another month of worry?

    You'll have to wait for an appt anyway and the results

    I had a cyst, had it biopsied, nothing, but please don't wait

    PLEASE go and have it checked. You can not let things like that go. It is probably nothing, but you have to make sure.

    I'll be praying!
