09/15/2008

Question:

i am 30 years old ,i had a hysterectomy in 2002 for treatment of stage 4 endometriosis and uterine fibroids and have been on hrt since about5 months ago i discovered a very small hard immobile lump on the underside of my right breast since discovering it it has grown i thought it would go away but it is not. should i get it checked out or am i simply overreacting . i also have a history of stage 1 cervical cancer i dont know if that has a bearing on this issue or not

Answer:

Yes, please get this checked out. This might be benign (and most lumps in 30 year olds are benign), but all breast lumps should be checked out by your physician.
