Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. If you are feeling a lump in your breast, you should visit a breast surgeon and have it evaluated. Although it is uncommon to get cancer at your age but it is always better to rule it out by examination and an ultrasound (sonomammogram). Is the lump associated with pain and do you have any family history of cancer? Pain along with the lump is a sign of a benign problem. Family history of cancer can lead to breast cancer at an early age.

It is advisable that you fix an appointment with a breast surgeon and have this lump evaluated.

Hoping for the best. Please feel free to clarify any other query.

Dear Ma'am,

If the lump is persisting for more than 2 years and is painful, then it is most likely to be benign but it is still best to get it investigated. I am working in a dedicated breast unit at XXXXXXX Hrudalaya, Mazumdar XXXXXXX Cancer Center, Bangalore. You can book an appointment with Dr. XXXXXXX Pais, who is the head of the unit. You can contact me if you want an appointment.

I do not have pain today..... I had stinging pain yesterday..... and I have this lump for almost 3 years actually and it is movable when palpated and I suspect it is benign mass.... but if there is a procedure to get it removed.... kindly do tell me what would the cost be and will the procedure be covered under Bajaj Alliance Insurance..... so that I can be prepared beforehand with details.

Also please let me know the address..... of the hospital Dr. Khandelwal and also if you could give contact number it would be helpful

Dear Ma'am,

Bajaj Insurance is covered in the hospital and the procedure cost for a benign lump removal is around 20 to 22 thousand, but before that we need to confirm whether it is benign or not by examination and an Ultrasound.
