I've found a lump in my breast...?
It's just n the middle of my cleavage,and it hurts when you put pressure on it. could it be cancer? I'm 20 years old, but theres no history of it in my family.


Hot stuff
I don't want to say it is but i don't want to say it is not.
get it checked out ASAP!!!

what are waiting for,seek medical attention.

you need to go do a mammogram to detect whether it is cancer or not.

it could be a cyst. don't worry you will be fine. usually breast cancer isn't in the cleavage. just to be safe have a mammogram and biopsy. go for the mammy first because the biopsy really hurts

Hi harryslil,
It may be a cyst. From age 17, I had several fibroidadomas, and one cyst. Because your breast tissue may be very dense at your age, your doctor may recommend ultrasound guided needle biopsy to further look at this lump. If they suspect it is a cyst, they may allow some time to pass to see if it naturally dissipates.

I had several of my fibroid masses excised, and it was not a bad procedure. all of mine have been benign, but I have mammos every 6 months to be safe, and do the monthly BSE.

I'm hoping it is just a fluid filled cyst you have, and it is uncomfortable. Wait to see your doctor before you get anxious about it. Good Luck!

Edit: none of my biopsies/excisions were painful. I was sore as I recovered, but relieved that the doctors were doing their best to find out what was what.

Don't hassle and guess. PLEASE GO AND GET IT CHECKED UP.

My suggestion would be get a breast test done. You can get info on this subject at www.prevention.com and also at www.healthtalk.com hope this helps and i pray its nothing serious Godbless

The ones that hurt are less likely to be cancer. but use that reassurance to get you over your reluctance to get it looked at by a doctor. Some of the non-cancer causes of lumps need treatment and most cancer is more treatable the earlier it is found.
ps -- if you have a hard time getting seen right away, even a nurse exam would be helpful.

Are you sure it"s not a pimple I would see a doctor ,that's nothin to guess at.

hey a breast cancer can happen without any prior family history.. i suggest u show it to a female specialist and they are gonna test whether the lump is benign or malignant... and don't worry... it's completely curable these days so be tension free!! just show it at the earliest!! take care and all the best!!

♥ hello_kitty_xoxo ♥
I would go get it checked out . Rather be safe then sorry . If you smoke and are taking birth control this will up your chances of getting breast cancer . Statistics say 1 in every 2 women will either develop breast cancer or osteoporosis .

Often there are no outward signs of breast cancer that you can see or feel. If there are outward signs, the more common ones include a lump, an area of thickening, or a dimple in the breast. Less common signs include breast swelling and redness or an enlarged underarm lymph node.

But even if you have one or more of these signs, it still doesn't mean you have breast cancer. Remember that most breast lumps turn out to be benign (not cancerous).

Still, it's extremely important that you SEE YOUR DOCTOR RIGHT AWAY if you're worried that you might have breast cancer. Having your doctor take a look will ease your worry, and if anything is found, you'll be able to take care of it quickly.

Physical examination of the breast is one way to find breast cancer.
Good luck and God bless you!

may god be with you

Of course it could be cancer, but its probably not. And family history isn't everything, it has to start someplace.

The fact that it's between your breasts and is painful is a good sign that it's benign, but you still need to go to a doctor asap and get checked out for sure.

just have it checked????????
of course it COULD be cancer.

Albreanna B
u should just go see a doctor he or she might help u.

i doubt it but get it checked out, the fact that it hurts means it cud be something else like a bruse, normally a tumor wudnt hurt right away

Get yourself to a doctor. The risk in not doing so is far too great.

u need to get that checked!

age doesnt matter. to be safer, get checked!

Texan Chic
go to your doctor just in case

Maiden Head
Better to be safe then sorry get checked.

it could be just fatty tissue. My friend fould a lump in her breast and thought it was cancer. The doctors ran test and it turned out to fatty tissue. You need to go to the doctor to get it looked at because sometimes the fatty tissue needs to be taken out

Most of the time cancer tumors are nonmoveable and nontender. It could be just a caffeine knot or something simple. Also, breast cancer usually is found first in the tail of spence which is located on the outer section of the breast up into the armpit. If the lump does not go away and you are still concerned then you should see your physician.

first thing is, don't panic. second thing is, make a doctor appt immediately for an annual pap exam and breast exam, or just a breast exam (depends on you), third, depending on what your doctor says, get a mammogram (I very much doubt it will come to that). some tips: breast cancer does not hurt, if it hurts, it is probably not breast cancer; also, there are certain times of the month when our breasts are more lumpy, you might just have something swollen in there, also you might just have some sore muscles underneath which would make it hurt if you pushed on it. so! get to the doctor but don't spend too much time freakin' in the meantime.

the lump may not be cancer but to be on the safe side see your doctor and ask to be referred to a specialist as soon as possible.no matter what the future holds remember to keep a positive attitude.

it is possible that you could have cancer
it is also possible that it is harmless
you should go see a doctor either way

You need to get it checked out by a doctor. It is probably nothing, but you need to get it checked to be safe.

steef queef
It could just be a sore.

Get it checked out, though.

Get yourself checked!!

Understanding BREAST CANCER is important -

The Breasts sit on the chest muscles that cover the ribs. Each breast is made of 15 to 20 lobes. Lobes contain many smaller lobules. Lobules contain groups of tiny glands that can produce milk. Milk flows from the lobules through thin tubes called ducts to the nipple. The nipple is in the center of a dark area of skin called the areola. Fat fills the spaces between the lobules and ducts.

The breasts also contain lymph vessels. These vessels lead to small, round organs called lymph nodes. Groups of lymph nodes are near the breast in the axilla (underarm), above the collarbone, in the chest behind the breastbone, and in many other parts of the body. The lymph nodes trap bacteria, cancer cells, or other harmful substances.

Understanding Cancer-

Cancer begins in cells, the building blocks that make up tissues. Tissues make up the organs of the body.

Normally, cells grow and divide to form new cells as the body needs them. When cells grow old, they die, and new cells take their place.

Sometimes, this orderly process goes wrong. New cells form when the body does not need them, and old cells do not die when they should. These extra cells can form a mass of tissue called a growth or tumor.

Tumors can be benign or malignant:

Benign tumors are not cancer:

* Benign tumors are rarely life-threatening.
* Generally, benign tumors can be removed. They usually do not grow back.
* Cells from benign tumors do not invade the tissues around them.
* Cells from benign tumors do not spread to other parts of the body.

Malignant tumors are cancer:

* Malignant tumors are generally more serious than benign tumors. They may be life-threatening.
* Malignant tumors often can be removed. But sometimes they grow back.
* Cells from malignant tumors can invade and damage nearby tissues and organs.
* Cells from malignant tumors can spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body. Cancer cells spread by breaking away from the original (primar) tumor and entering the bloodstream or lymphatic system. The cells invade other organs and form new tumors that damage these organs. The spread of cancer is called metastasis.

When breast cancer cells spread, the cancer cells are often found in lymph nodes near the breast. Also, breast cancer can spread to almost any other part of the body. The most common are the bones, liver, lungs, and brain. The new tumor has the same kind of abnormal cells and the same name as the primary tumor. For example, if breast cancer spreads to the bones, the cancer cells in the bones are actually breast cancer cells. The disease is metastatic breast cancer, not bone cancer. For that reason, it is treated as breast cancer, not bone cancer. Doctors call the new tumor "distant" or metastatic disease.

So please consult your doctor and he will direct you for action to be taken.-
