    Any changes at all in the breasts should be checked out ASAP! My right breast was fuller than my left, tender, & swollen. It seemed to happen overnight. I was diagnosed with breast cancer. And this came 5 months after a so called "clean" mammogram. Please get it checked out. It may be nothing to worry about...but you never ever want to take that chance!! Always better to be safe than sorry. Keep us posted on how you are.

      I agree 100% with Diana. Get it checked as soon as you can. Better safe than sorry.

    My breast was uncomfortable, heavy and burning so I went and had a mammogram. They found IDC and I am mid way through my treatment. You need to have any changes to your breast checked out. Even more so because you have a family history. All the best.

    All I can say is "DITTO." As with Diana, I also had clean mammograms and found a lump in my breast which turned out to be IDC 2B. My breast also felt weird.... I can't really explain it but it felt not normal. Anytime you have a change in your breast especially with a family history.... get yourself to the doctor. Sounds like you are already on the game plan.... GREAT. Please let us know how you are. Take care, Sharon

    ~Right breast discomfort Did you have shoulder pain along with the breast pain and tenderness? My nipple feels like it did when I use to breast feed. I am scheduling an appoinment at Vanderbilt Breast Cancer Center just in case. Thank you all for your comments to my earlier post. I have been putting it off hoping that it would just go away. I have four children and I'm trying my best not to worry.
