i've been having pain around my right breast and not only that my breast feels hard like watermelon. i've told the doctors they checked but said they could not feel nothing. im still having it and it bothers me so. im also scared because my mom lost both of her breast due to cancer

I can appreciate your concern, since your mother had breast cancer.

If I were you, I would get a second opinion. Have you had a recent mammogram? Did your physician order a MRI or ultrasound of your breasts? If not, I think these are diagnostic tests that could help identify the cause of the swelling and pain as well as detect any abnormalities or masses.

Best wishes,
