I am 26 years old and in the past couple months my left breast had become noticebly bigger than the right breast and just tonight I have noticed what I believe to be a lump. should I be concerned of breast cancer?!

    I found a lump very early on so was able to have it removed with radiotherapy afterwards. All clear now but only because I went to have it checked out as soon as I noticed it. Wish you luck, good chance it's nothing but don't take the chance.

    I agree with Anne Marie. Any chances noticed in your breast should be checked out ASAP. It could be something minor...but you never want to take that chance!

    You should make an appt to get it checked out no lump should be ignored and not all lumps are cancer. It could be a cyst, an infection or abscess, or a benign growth (fibroadenoma). The sooner it is evaluated the sooner you will have peace of mind knowing what it is and if treatment is needed. Please don't wait. Take care

    Thank you everyone for your input, I have an appointment for next week with my primary and then I get the referral to see someone at the breast center.
