I've had a lump on my bra line for a while now. I always just thought it was a part of my chest wall until the other day when I felt it and noticed there was not a bump on the other breast. I called my obgyn and got in for an appointment. She said it was a pimple/sebaceous cyst and she could see it "coming to head". Well, I went home and looked and there was NOTHING. No pimple, no head, no mark, absolutely nothing. This lump is small, a little hard, and painless. I am 20 years old and just got an ultrasound of my breasts done this past June. I am wondering if this could be breast cancer and if I should get a second opinion. I want a biopsy but my husband is telling me I should trust my doctor. I don't know how I could trust her if I don't see a pimple there. It's been there for a while I highly doubt it could be a pimple. Especially since there isn't anything there. I'm so worried and upset right now I have been crying constantly because I am so afraid of this being breast cancer. Please help me.

      See I rarely wear bras, that's the thing. I mean yes my bras rub against it when I do wear them. But I am a stay at home mom and don't really leave the house often so I don't wear bras often.

    It sounds like a sebaceous cyst and it has been confirmed by your obgyn. In fact they don't come to a head like a pimple. A lot of people get them and do nothing about them, if they are painless.

    HI 

    I am  BC survivor for 17 years ,,So if in these days it was BC it is no longer a deaath senance ,,BUT if you have ANT small lunp Hard an painless even I would see an Oncologist and let him/herdecide whether you need a biopsy..IF it were a cyst they usually are painful..more risky are the hard no pain type lumps,,Probably not seroius but I would ease my mind and re check it with a knowedable Oncologist .

    My BC was mis diagnosed by FOUR doctors for 7 years BECAUSE it hurt,,IF it HURTS they now know it COULD e cancer,,,So the old fashioned idea of if it hurts it is just a cyst is NO LONGER true,,but do not stress THAT causes many illnesses ..Just get a second opinion or.and an ultrasound

    Blessings
