I noticed a small pea size lump on my upper breast very close to my chest wall. It is now about the size of a marble and the skin above it has a bruised color to it. There is some dimpling of the skin on one side of the lump.
I live in a small town and when to see a surgeon that was recommended by my Dr.
After the initial details, he felt the lump and said that's exactly the type of lump that has us very suspicious. He told me I would need to have an Ultra Sound biopsy and it would take about 7 days to get the results back.
He next 'out of the blue' comment was very casual as he asked me if I had considered a Mastectomy. I was shocked to hear this when I haven't even had the biopsy. I'm not sure what to think at this point.
