I am 25years old, single. Recently, I found a lump in my left breast when bathing. It is mobile and not painful .What Should I Do?
A. Eighty percent of breast lumps are not cancerous. They usually have smooth edges and can be moved slightly when they are pushed against.
However, you should be checked by a doctor to make sure the lump is benign. The doctor will confirm
• The presence of the lump
• The size, shape , contour, mobility and sensitivity of the lump
• The presence or absence of other lumps
• Whether there are any changes in the feel or appearance of the skin on the breast or nipple (whether there are any dimples, whether the skin is puckered, scaly or inflamed)
• The presence of any bloody discharge from the nipples
• Any lumps in the armpits
