The ultra sound went well they said the lump under my nipple could be a blocked duct or infection but they also found a black dot the size of a ten cent piece underneath my right arm just near the breast when i asked what that was she said im better to discuss my results with my doctor so now the waiting game begins hopefully it's nothing major but still worried
