Cancer: Breast Message Board

Cancer: Breast Board Index

Oct 4, 2007
Hi there. I'm not sure where to begin with this. To cut a very long story short.
I am a 21 yo female who until a year ago was perfectly healthy.
In Jan i was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, i had 6 cycles of chemo and was told about 2 weeks ago that i am now in full remission. But last week while i was in the shower i noticed a small pea sized lump under my left armpit. I went to see my oncologist who told me that it was not a lymph gland but breast tissue. She said that with the chemo and my periods were very irregular and now they seem to be settling down that your breast tissue sometimes goes a bit lumpy and not to worry. However she then told me that she would order a mammogram 'just to be sure'.

I had a PET/CT scan about 3-4 weeks ago and i know that that is only used for Hodgkins and lung cancer so i dont know if a lump in my breast tissue would show up. I'm scared right now when i should be out celebrating and i'm trying to convince myself that i'm being paranoid. I don't want to turn into a paranoid person! Does anyone know if it was a cancerous lump it would have appeared on the PET/CT scan? I'm can't stop worrying about it. I don't think my body would cope with anymore chemo. I don't think i could emotionally cope with it again.
