User :   Hi I am really worried about a lump that I have found. It is underneath my breast on the bone although it seems to have grown a little. It is small, round and hard. I went to see the doctor about 2 months ago and he told me it was a spot. It has not gone away. Today I noticed I have a lump under my arm pit of a similar size and shape. My Grandma had breast cancer and my mum may have the faulty gene. I am only 34 years old. Please help as soon as possible because I would like to be reassured.
