Breast cancer and miscarriages
I have been pregnant two times in the past three months and both resulted in a miscarriage. Just this past week I discovered a very hard, but small lump in my right breast. I am wondering if this may sound like it could be breast cancer related, however I don`t know if this is in fact breast cancer. I am 41 years old.
This could be nothing, but a high index of suspicion is required so that breast cancers are not missed. You should definitely have this checked and have a bilateral mammogram.
