Hi, I'm hoping some body builders will be able to help! ...
I'm a little worried about a recent breast exam in which my ob/gyn doctor found a pin-head sized lump in my upper breast toward the middle of my chest. She was pressing on that area and asked if it felt tender. It did, but I was so upset at the time that I forgot to mention that I had done some heavy (for me) chest presses the previous day. She probably doesn't have very many patients who strength train -? I'm small--34B, and 51 years old, and edging toward menopause. I was referred to a breast surgeon, my appointment is the end of May.
Now, I'm wondering if pectoral development can mimic breast cancer, can you get a lump from it?
I had a negative mammogram 3 months ago, but that doesn't set my mind at ease. I had a benign cyst removed 4 years ago when I was experiencing fibrocystic breasts, but that has gone away as I quit having regular periods.
Thanks, in advance!
