Check yourself..please..

There is a plethora of information that can be found on the Internet, through your doctor or even at your local library on breast health. I have found a great website called that can give you a lot of information. I suggest reading the material regardless of how old or healthy you are. Look at me, 29 and having to go to the doctor because of what we hope is benign cysts, this we will hope to find out after my ultrasound. First of, check yourself regularly and if you find something suspicious go to the doctor. Mine sent me for a mammogram, more so uncomfortable than painful, if you can give birth you can handle this with ease. If the mammogram looks fine then you are good to go. In my case they found something (which we already knew) and now I go for an ultrasound to hopefully make sure it is benign, at least that is what the doctor is telling me. If you have had cysts or know someone who has then you know that can be painful, Tylenol does not always work for me. Next, you will go to a surgeon, to have the cysts aspirated and tested to be sure, this can relieve the pressure and pain immediately as well. So, stay on top of it and keep you health in check. We will find out what my next step is after the ultrasound and go from there. Which is going to be enjoying my family and continue to take care of myself and my family.

Daniele, I will be praying everything is okay. I know how scary the waiting can be.

I'm getting a mammogram on March 14.

But, since my mom and my mother in law both have breast cancer I pretty much feel my boobies everyday. LOL!

I guess I am a little behind with everything going on in your life. I am so sorry that you have found what I can only hope and pray is benign cysts.

I am so impressed that you are thinking of others while dealing with all of this. Thanks for all of the information and please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I hope everything is fine. I had a cyst aspirated last year and thankfully, it was normal.
