Evening, Went for my yearly mammaogram. The doctor asked me to come back for a second. I now have to get a biopsy due to a mass on the right breast.
Interesting enough my fiance was working today. One of his patients told him that his wife had the same issue of mass on breast. My fiance didn't mention me or the lyme. Turns out the patients wife has lyme and some doctor told her that women with lyme can experience these types of masses. Most of the time they are benign.
Well, keep me in your thoughts/ prayers monday.
Anyone else experience anything like this?

I had a Thermogram about 4 months ago and it showed heat in an area on my right breast. I had actually been having some tenderness there off and on. But, since I switched out of underwire bras to tanks and am now doing upward massage, it is gone. I'm currently being treated for Babs. The Nurse said it could have been an infection...... I'm guessing Lyme is possible. Hope this helps

We are finding a number of breast issues in women with Lyme and co-infections. It seems more so than in the normal populations.
MOST have been lumps that were "ok"... which is the really good news.
Also, caffeine intake is sometimes linked to breast lumps. I was told that years ago, stopped caffeine and the lumps went away.
