Brian32 - I am really surprised they did not tell you whether it looks like a fluid-filled cyst or a solid mass.  When my lump was found, they stuck a needle into it and the surgeon said if she got fluid from it, that was a good sign.  She didn't get any fluid from it and when I went into surgery to have it removed, it was sent to pathology and determined to be cancer.  

My lump was a 1.8 mass and that made it Stage 1 cancer.  I was right on the cusp of not even needing chemo.  So, if it were cancer, and I hope it isn't, it sounds like it may have been caught very early.  

The surgery itself did not cause me much pain.  The only real pain I experienced was that associated with them taking out 12 lymph nodes under my armpit to make sure the cancer had not spread.  

Have you done much research on the web?  I can't believe all the information that is out there.  Good luck with everything and I wish you a positive outcome.  This is never any fun!
