Answer

Shauna, if this is a new lump (e.g., you haven't had it for years and years), then probably best to see a doctor. Most breast lumps aren't cancer; they can be the result of a number of different causes. But any lump lasting longer than several weeks qualifies as a breast change, and breast changes should always be examined and diagnosed by a doctor. Good luck - PJH
