Hi - If you feel a lump in your breast that wasn't there previously, you should keep your eye on it. If it doesn't disappear in a couple of weeks (i.e., it doesn'tfollow along with your menstrual cycle), then you should go have it checked out by a doctor, OK? One breast being larger than the other is udually normal - a new lump is not. Good luck- PJH
