hello i am wondering if any one u can help me i am 26 i have been told i have glactorrea(milk discharge from breast) since 17, i have had MRI to ruleot a tumor causing the discharge, but that was like almost 10 years ago, i have had a prolactin test done every 6 months since that, but this last year i have not had the test bacause i am breastfeeding so of course my level would be high. But any way i feel a lump in my head, it been there for 3 month, i know i didn't hit my head. Could me breastfeeding have exposed a lump or whatever it is that was alwasy there?, Could the lump mean nothing? I am finally going to doc today to get my regular woman check up and i will get him to check it and ask him if i should worry. I know this was never there, i guess i was just wondering what u all thought.
P_RN, ADN, RN
I hope it turns out to be absolutely nothing! Good luck.
P_RN thank u i guess not to many know much about this, i too am hoping all is well:)
PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW YOUR APPOINTMENT TURNS OUT....I TOO HAVE A SMALL LUMP ON MY RIGHT TEMPLE AREA, THE DOC SAYS "IT'S NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT".
DR, said he thinks its nothing maybe just a growth, he said it right unders the skin but don't think it nothing to worry about he just want me to watch the headaches and to watch if it get bigger and if that happens, he wants me to call immediately and he will take further action, othee than that all is well i guess, i am just waiting from results of Pap smear, Gosh i hate those things:)
Ocean- your doc probably right, but i know how u feel i hate having things on my body that don't belong there:eek:
Dee, I was having 'atypical' headaches for a while and demanded a CT scan. The dr. gave in and I had one--all was clear.
If you're uncomfortable with what your doc said--it's nothing to worry about, just watch the headaches, etc, you may want to see your PCP and demand further tests. For your own peace of mind.
But I did also have a doc tell me once that we can't go around feeling every little bump and start thinking it's cancer. I have little bumps on certain muscles that have been there forever. For instance there;'s one on the back of my neck. And I have one on my shin.
