Hello Anonymous,

It is understandable that this can be worrisome and on your mind. You are doing the right thing by seeing your physician.

You may have a lipoma, which is a slow-growing fatty lump. It is most often situated between your skin and the underlying muscle layer. It isn't cancer and is usually harmless. Treatment generally is not necessary, but if the lipoma causes discomfort or grows, it may need to be removed.

The exact cause of lipomas is unknown. Some people are prone to the development of them.

Hello Anonymous,

Is your physician aware of the lump in your right breast and the new one? Is the new lump in the same breast or in the left breast? Have you had a mammogram since the development of the lump in 2005 and recently?

Are you having any breast pain or tenderness? Has the lump in your right breast changed in size?

Make an appointment with your physician to get the lumps checked out.
Please keep us updated.
