Just curious, does anyone else here suffer from breast lumps, cysts, or fibroids? I've got something in my right breast that I need to get checked out - went for a mammogram under the recommendation of my doctor, but the clinic wouldn't even bother because I'm not "at risk," and they said I need to have an ultrasound done first to see whether I even need a mammogram. This lump is a result of the birth control pill screwing up my body in many ways - just one of the side effects. I'm upset because I'm a healthy person, and now this has me terrified. I've got no history or family history of breast problems, was completely healthy before the pill messed me up (still need to post about that). I've heard that if the lump moves, it's most likely not cancerous, and mine is like a marble. It sometimes hurts, though. My mother-in-law also has some cysts, and she said they sometimes just hurt and annoy. A lady at our church told me she has had the same problem for many many years, and she always took a certain vitiamin that helped with the discomfort, but I can't remember what it was she recommended. Vitamin E perhaps? Does anyone have any similar experiences?
