I am 25 years old female, recently did an ultrasound and the result is as such. No pain and can't really feel the lump physically. Is there anything of concern because the doctor said it is probably benign and told me not to worry.
Did the dr giving you his opinion a radiologist, your primary dr or an oncologist?
If it was me, I would request 2nd opinion. At a minimum, I would ask for a biopsy to verify what it is. Then you would know for sure.
At the very least, request a second opinion immediately. My second breast cancer diagnosis began when my oncologist found a lump in my left breast that she insisted was a cyst. She referred me for a mammogram and ultrasound for "due diligence" only. Even when I asked for the truth, she insisted what she found as "just a cyst". If you feel at all uncomfortable with a doctor's assessment, change doctors. I did. Best of luck to you.
Absolutely get a second opinion, There are many great doctors out there. I go to Dr. Elizabeth Reed at UNMC. A biopsy would confirm cyst (liquid) vs. something else. I never felt any of my lumps and this one seems rather large, larger than my tumors.
Get a biopsy done. My surgeon said it was nothing to worry about on two separate ultrasounds 6 months apart. Then my nipple inverted 3 months later and a biopsy was done and it was cancer and spread to my lymph nodes.

So scary to hear stories like this – when it sounds like you were doing your best to control the situation. I'm so sorry this happened to you.When my cancer was first diagnosed – I asked them if it was visible on the previous year's mammogram. I could tell she did not want to answer that – because the answer was yes. Then she went on to say it was "just a shadow" and I should not blame them. Big Sigh. Luckily mine had not spread into the lymph nodes, but had gone from DCIS to Invasive Ductal Cancer. It makes me wonder – is it normal for them to cover their asses? Apparently.
