Please try not to worry (I should take my own advice!) but yes, I would get it checked out. Any changes in the breast should be looked at by your dr. I would suggest starting w/ your gyn, unless you've had past problems and have a specialist  you could see? Otherwise, see your gyn. As I've learned here, 80% of lumps are benign :-)   but nevertheless, should be checked. Please let us know how you are!!

Hi prof and welcome. Yes, I agree you need to have it checked. As Jen said, 80% of lumps are benign, but it is better to be safe and make sure. My lump was only 6mm. I went and had it checked and I am glad I did. And PLEASE do not let them tell you to wait and see. The only way to know for sure is a biopsy. It is a very easy procedure and you go home after it. Please let us know how it goes.

Hi Jen. I am glad you are not wanting to wait and see! I just don't understand why doctors even suggest that. I can see where they don't like to do unnecessary surguries, but they do not KNOW FOR SURE if it is unnecessary unless they do it!!! They can give an experienced guess, and I bet they are normally correct, BUT if it was me, I want to be sure. Maybe it is the insurance companies that are pressuring the doctors. Anyway, good luck and let us know "how goes the battle."

My answer is the same as the others. Don't be "worried" but be concerned enough to get real answers. The earlier any cancer is found, the better prognosis. So if you wait six months and there is little change, are they going to suggest another six month wait? It makes no sense to me. Get it out and know the answers. And let us know here how you are doing. We do care. Hugs MK
