Questions About Breast Cancer
I found a lump in my breast? I need advice?ok so details. I'm 23 and have no major health conditions. I'm in an exclusve relationship. I have 2 children 2 yrs and 5months. My hair began falling out last month. Tonight I found a lump in my breast near the nipple. Where the lump is, the skin is lighter in color. Now i'm really scared. What is the chance this may be breast cancer. I just don't want to leave my babies without a mommy. I am so scared.
This could be any number of things so GO SEE A DOCTOR!
amanda it could be a cyst or a cancer lump you need to get a mammogram ASAP only way you will know. if it is cancer you need to get it found before it could spread.. but in most cases its a cyst at your age
I can't stress this enough. YAHOO answers is not an appropriate source for medical advice. GO AND SEE A DOCTOR
You should be at the doctor yesterday. If you don't get going, what you fear most will happen.
The risk of this being breast cancer is very low. Hair loss is not related to breast cancer, it can sometimes be a side effect of treatment. You don't mention where you are in your cycle. This is most likely hormonal (that would also account for the hair loss) but the only way to know is to see a Dr. It could also be related to a blocked milk duct (are you still feeding the 5 month old?) Hair loss can also be associated with nutritional deficiencies associated with breast feeding. No need for panic at this stage, but get it checked out.
