I Feel A Ball Like Something Inside By Breast. My Age Is 23. Is It A Symptom Of Breast Cancer.

Answer

Lakshana, there are all kinds of conditions that can cause breast lumps; probably the least likely is cancer. You may have a cyst; or a fibroadenoma, a benign tumor that's the result of fibrocystic change, which is quite common in women your age. It's possible you have cancer; but unlikely.

If this lump is something you just discovered, keep your eye on it; if it's still there after a month, and hasn't disappeared/reappeared (which can happen in synch with your period, if it's hormonally related), then it would be best to see a doctor, OK? Only a doctor can rule out breast cancer for sure. Good luck - PJH
