as a 2 time breast cancer survivor, I strongly urge you to get this lump checked out! For your peace of mind and your health. I waited a long time after I found my lump because i was afraid. believe me knowing is alot better than not. at least you know what your dealing with. there are so many other things it could be, but knowing your moms history you should get it checked out. good luck to you and my prayers are with you.

This is something that needs to be evaluated by your physician as soon as possible. If you have not had a recent examination or mammogram, one is necessary. Your risk for developing breast cancer increases by having a mother with the diagnosis. For peace of mind, make an appointment.
