small, painful lump found in right breast

Hi, i need somebody to help me urgently.

I'm in my mid teens, and earlier on this evening, i noticed that my right breast slightly ached, so i checked it out myself and found a lump, which is not visible on the surface of the skin. The lump is located on the left hand side of the right breast, directly next to and underneath the nipple. The nipple on my left breast is flat, which i got checked out earlier in the year by my doctor. The lump inside my breast feels unmovable, possibly quite large, and aches even when its not touched.

I am also two weeks late for my period, which hasn't occurred before.

I need to get this checker out, however, beforehand, i would like some advice on whether or not it could be premature breast cancer, and whether or not it can be treated. I have also read up on the possible link between breast cancer and infertility.

I would really really appreciate it if someone could advise me ASAP.
Thankyou x

Re: small, painful lump found in right breast

you need to see a doctor and have a mammogram so they can look at it. But there are a lot of different lumps that can occur in the breast and if it feels large and painful, it may be a cyst or abscess for example. But it needs to be checked it asap and treated no matter what it is. I just wouldn't jump to conclusions it's cancer until you've had it checked out

Okay, thank you so much. I have told my boyfriend and a trusted female, and they agree that i need to go to the doctors.

The lump feels smallish, and hard.

Re: small, painful lump found in right breast

A mammogram is super quick and easy. I just had my first one not too long ago. You will have to get a referral from your doctor to have it done. I would have them write it for a mammogram with ultrasound if indicated. It is probably nothing, but better to be safe than sorry.

It's always best to get any breast lumps checked out quickly, but most of the time they actually turn out to be non cancerous lumps of different types so try not to worry too much until you see your doc. Cysts etc will usually feel hard and will be painful and you may need to have them drained to get the fluid out, so make an appointment with your doctor and go from there but the odds are very good that it's something quite harmless.

ps. I had something very similar in my early 20s, it was in a similar spot to where yours is and it was painful and I had it removed, but it turned out it was just a largish cyst. I wasn't too worried because the doc said by looking at the mammogram it didn't look like cancer anyway
