Lump – 1

Last week as I started on my long run I felt soreness in my right upper chest. Since I’d been doing all this sanding, and staining on the door and table I thought it was just muscle soreness. As the run continued I forgot about it. Later that day I continued on my refinishing chores, but didn’t feel the soreness then. I think it was on Sunday or Monday that I noticed a lump in my upper right breast. It wasn’t especially tender, but it was harder than my normal breast tissue and it was about two inches across. I showed it to Kathy on Monday night who told me to get an appointment with the doctor to check it out.


I went in on Wednesday afternoon to see the nurse practitioner who checked me out. She said that it didn’t appear to be an infection (no redness) or the lymph nodes weren’t sore, and suggested I get an ultrasound. So now I’ve got an appointment for a mammogram and ultrasound on November 6th. Naturally I have no idea how long that I’ve had this lump, but now I constantly feel it especially as I jiggle along as I’m running. Naturally I’m worried since I have a propensity for getting tumors of various types – foot, hand, brain, what have you.
