    Hi - You don't say how old you both are, but I'm guessing pretty young - like, early 20s or younger. If that's the case, this could be the way her breasts naturally feel, and she's just now examining them to find out. However, breast lumps should always be examined by a doctor. This doesn't sound like a cyst, although it could be what's called fibrocystic breast condition - "naturally lumpy breasts." At any rate, you and she should stop worrying, and get to the doctor; worrying doesn't accomplish anything besides making you feel bad. So find out what it is so you can move forward. Best of luck - PJH
