Answer

Leah, take a deeeeep breath, and stay calm. 95% of breast cancer cases are in women over the age of 40, so the stats are with you. You could have a blocked milk duct (which seems likely, given its location); a cyst, or some other issue going on, but chances are it's not breast cancer. Take a look at my current sharepost, which lists all the reasons you SHOULDN'T be afraid you have breast cancer. And that said - ALL breast changes should be checked by a doctor, unless they come and go in synch with your period. So try not to worry, but do make a doctor's apt. to find out what's up with that lump, OK? Now go out and have a nice day! - PJH
