Hi Anonymous

Thanks for your post and I understand your fears, having found a lump in your breast.

Firstly, let me reassure you that most lumps found in the breast are harmless. Upon saying that, however, it's very important for you to get this lump checked out. Your doctor will probably perform a physical exam and may order a mammogram. But you really do need to see a doctor for this. While most of these lumps will turn out to be nothing (other than scaring the pants off you), some do turn out to be serious and catching these lumps early is crucial to your treatment and your outcome.

Will you place a call to your doctor today? Please keep us updated, we're here to support you all the way.
