22 and worried
I`m 22 years old and their is a sore lump in my left breast. The skin over the area is red. Is it possible that I have breast cancer? the sore lump is painful sometimes.Reply..Please........
A red, painful mass in the breast of a 22 year old woman is probably an abscess (localized infection with a fluid collection). Cancer is rare in this age group. I recommend you see a physician and have it evaluated.
