What does a development of an elongated nodule in the inferior and lateral aspect of the right breast mean? Is this a sign of breast cancer?

    It is a description of the lump "elongated nodule." "Inferior and lateral aspect" is just describing the location in the right breast of the lump. Unless they do a biopsy and say it is cancer the description and location is just that.... the lump is elongated meaning... "long" and where it is located. Take care, Sharon

      I completely understand your concern but keep in mind, so many of these lumps and bumps turn out to be nothing. I am very glad to hear you have regular mammograms. The radiologist is taking the correct steps to examine these areas if there is the least amount of change. We all know what that fear is like because we've been there. You are so correct in saying "fear of the unknown." Honestly, I can say fear of the unknown was probably the time when I have been the most miserable. Remember doctor's are extremely cautious these days. They biopsy things all the time which is good but they scare the socks off of us in the meantime. Hang in there Patricia.... Please keep us posted.
      Take care, Sharon
