Hi Adrienne & welcome to Healing Well. I totally understand the scared feeling. However, you will need proper testing to determine if this is in fact cancer or not. Finding a lump does not mean cancer. Get in with your regular dr & he/she can order say a mammogram & possible ultrasound. Depending on the results of the test will determine if a biopsy is needed.

In my 40's my mammo came back abnormal, they were not sure if it was cysts or what it was. As it turned out with further testing I had several calcifications to show up. I was monitored for a couple of years & then just normal routine stuff & never needed a biopsy. Was I scared, you bet I was thats normal.

Take care.
