I've always had pretty fibrous ("lumpy") breasts but there has never been any pain associated with it. About six weeks ago my left breast suddenly felt very firm and tender on the left side (towards my armpit). It was the week before my period so I waited to see if it would pass but it didn't. It's now the first day of my next period and there has been no change. I went to the clinic today and the doctor noted that it was indeed much firmer than my right breast and there was a mass about 2cm in diameter in the 2-3 o'clock position. I have an ultrasound scheduled in just over a week but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Sore breasts are nothing new but usually it doesn't hang around this long!
For what it's worth I am 22 and not on any form of hormonal birth control. Thanks for all your input!
