I have been having a discomfort on my right breast, I would rate the pain about a 5. I had a mamogram about 9 months ago but there was nothing to be seen. What should my Dr. be looking for??"""

Aout a yr ago i started feeling a small bump on my right breast, which didnt turn up in the mamogram. I drink a lot of sodas so i thought maybe too much caffeen. But now I cant even wear my bra because it bothers me. The pain is towards the left side of my right breast, almost towards the center of my chest. Brest cancer runs in my mothers side of the family and im very concearned.

And here is a very informative page on breast lumps and pain:


Will you call your doctor's office and go back in? And then come back and let us know what you find out?
