Worried about breast cancer

mozart56 profile image

Hi, I hope someone can possibly inform me about this: A couple months ago I noticed a small mass (smaller than pea-size) in my right breast area, an inch or so below the nipple. I showed this to my family doctor. She said that it felt more like a sebaceous cyst than a tumor. She did recommend that I follow up with getting it imaged, which I am doing this week.

Breast cancer, though rare in men, can often have a higher mortality rate than in women, or so it says on the internet. But my GP said that cancerous breast tumors in men usually form right underneath the nipple. There is not a history of breast cancer in my family.

Does anyone out there have any experience with a situation similar to mine who could please share your experience or first-hand knowledge with me? Thanks.
