BakersDozen Posted June 3, 2009 Share Posted June 3, 2009 I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but this is the only board I allow myself to get on (I'm a recovering board addict, lol). It's pretty personal so just be warned... I went for my yearly and the nurse was thorough...very thorough! She found a significant mass on my left side. I knew it was there but disregarded it because I'm nursing. I was sent for an u/s (no mammogram thanks to nursing) and there is nothing there. But I can feel it! It's not small, either! The radiologist came in and looked but confirmed no cyst or anything. I spoke to the nurse at my OBs today and she wants me to come in for a "consultation". All my other tests came back normal (thyroid, etc) so I asked why I had to come in but she just said the doctor would want to see me. My questions are: 1) Should I make an appt. and go in? It would cost me $20 which I'd rather not spend just to be told that there is nothing wrong. I'm a bit nervous that my doctor will want to order a mammogram which would mean I have to wean my baby which I do not want to do. 2) Has anyone had something like this and it turned out to be nothing? Not even a cyst? I've had this for years, it doesn't hurt but is a bit tender (which the nurse said was good). I don't want to make a big deal out of something that may not be anything. I've had the tests, nothing was there, can't I just be done with this? And I really, really don't want to wean my baby just for another test.
