I was wondering if anyone has experienced this... I noticed my left breast was "swollen", sore and just not feeling right. Then about a week later my armpit swelled. I went to my gyn who said he felt the swelling and sent me for a mammo and ultrasound. The reports state that there is no swelling in my lymph nodes, no abnormalities within the breast. The only thing they said is that the breast shows scattered Fibroglandular density. I have an appointment with a breast specialist but when I called to see if I could get on the cancellation list I was told that I was scheduled appropriately and that I shouldn't be concerned because cancer usually doesn't cause pain and my reports were clear. I am concerned that they are going to "sweep me under the carpet"! I don't think my symptoms are normal and obviously my gyn didn't either. Has anyone had these symptons with "negative" test results? My breast and armpit are very tender, still very "swollen" and not right! Anyone who may have info I would greatly appreciate it. I would like to see the breast specialist armed with my concerns/info so that I don't get "swept" aside.
Thank you in advance for your comments!
