I am suffering from anxiety around the health issues, cancer and tend to obsess about things. I have been fixating on my breasts and keep thinking I feel lumps. My doctor suggested to get an ultrasound four weeks ago for my peace of mind and they were perfectly fine. Tonight, I was scratching and then prodded to the left of my nipple on my right breast. If I push firmly down I feel a small knot or pea like thing. There seems to be two and one is more prominent. I can feel something vaguely on the left side of my breast but not near a prominent. Am I right in assuming? As I had an ultrasound only four weeks ago and everything was fine, whatever I am feeling might be some muscle or something. I have to press quite firmly to feel it. If I just do a normal breast exam, then I cannot feel it. Also, if the scan was fine four weeks ago, is it possible for a cancerous lump to grow in that time frame? Sorry, the anxiety is tough to deal with. Please help.
