      Implants don't cause breast cancer, but they can make it more difficult to detect a lump.

      You don't get breast cancer if you get implants! You don't get BC! it's not contagious! Cancer are malignant cells we all have that for some reason, known and unknown, clumps together and cause the disease.

      It generally means there is something that has shown up on a mammogram or through a physical exam that is unidentifiable. You will need further testing to make sure it isn't cancer.

      It generally means there is something that has shown up on a mammogram or through a physical exam that is unidentifiable. You will need further testing to make sure it isn't cancer. Just as Michele says.... most lumps (or masses) are benign. Right now, this lump doesn't look like normal breast tissue. BUT... that does not mean it is cancerous. Have it checked asap for your own peace of mind. Take care, Sharon

      It is understandable to be worried when you hear you have a mass. 80% of breast lumps are NOT cancer! A biopsy will let you know for sure. Wishing you good news! Please keep us posted. Take care.

      Hi Traci, I also have eczema (legs, back and face). If yours reacts like mine, then it will go away during chemo. I had a complete secession of that condition. That was one positive during chemo, completely clear of eczema! (It does come back after). Good luck! Laura

      I have a tendency to get eczema. I think the steroids you take before, during, and after might help. I did get a bad rash on my scalp after one chemo. The doctor prescribed an antibiotic for that, so that wasn't eczema. Do you have any allergies to tape? If so, ask the nurses to use gauze...
