My ultrasound of my breasts showed a lymph node in the right breast at about position 8 o'clock. With my history of lymphoma I asked them to do a needle biopsy which they are doing this coming Tuesday. They said that usually lymph nodes aren't found in breast tissue but occassionally they see this and the node looked perfectly benign from the ultrasound picture that I saw.
Anywho I was wondering if anyone had experience with this kind of thing?? My GP said that there are a few markers for cancercous nodes and this lymph node showed no signs of anything but with my background she agreed - better check it out. I had a needle biopsy in my other breast years ago and it turned out to be lymphoma. Not too stressed about this one but of course there is always the possibility. I have had alot of treatments and couldn't take much more so options are becoming more and more limited for me.
Anyone have any experience with lymph nodes hanging out in the breasts? Does it mean anything in particular with regards to diagnosis?
Thanks for your time.
