Something scary - Haven't shared with anyone IRL yet....

So, there's this lump in my breast. I noticed it when my milk came in and thought it was a clogged duct. Just recently I realized that it's still there. It hasn't been bothering me. BFing is going well. There is no soreness, heat etc that you'd associate with a clogged duct and now I'm reading online and I'm not feeling like it's characteristic of a clogged duct. Sad I haven't told anyone of my fears. I'm scheduled for my 6 wk OB appt on Friday next week. I think I'm going to call them Mon to see if I can get the appointment moved up so that I can get a professional opinion. Can you send me some T&Ps that it's nothing?

A million good thoughts and tons of prayers headed your way! I'm sure it's nothing, but I would be freaking out too. I'll never forget when I developed lumps in my armpit after my first son's birth. I was sure something horrible was wrong with me. It turned out to be displaced milk ducts but, boy, it scared me just the same. (((Hugs)))!!!!!

((HUGS)) sending tons of T&P your way! I would be freaked out by that too. I hope it's a false alarm!

saw the doc. Having a breast u/s tomorrow. She said it was good that it moves under the skin and that 95% of the time it turns out to be nothing but that it's important to get checked out. I had to tell DH because the baby can't come back w/me for the test. The hospital is right down the street from his work so he's going to meet me there to hold DD while I have it done. I felt bad springing this on him over the phone at work. I'm sure we will both downplay our individual concerns until we know what's going on.

Hi There. Had some good appointments and they think it's a milk filled complex cyst. I'm going to do a follow up U/S to make sure it's not growing (and hopefully see that it's shrinking, but that doesn't always happen until stopping BFing).

I'm glad you have some potential answers! I hope the cyst shrinks on its own so that it won't compromise BFing.
