I have had a breast that seems habitually *plugged* since the birth of my dd (she's 17 months now) While I was nursing I didn't think much of it... it wasn't painful, just like plugged ducts or something. I did go to my doc about it and she said the same thing.. plugged ducts, common after pregnancy, don't worry about it. I haven't been nursing now for 4 months and I still have the little lumps! I went back to the doc and she told me that my breast is just very dense... but she seemed adamant that nothing was wrong because she couldn't feel a lump that would signal breast cancer. I still thought it was odd but I dropped it....
So I'm just wondering what type of tests they ran to uncover it, in case I need to go back in and ask for something specifically.
