Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Nice to interact with you again after XXXXXXX 2015 and Nov 2015.

To recapitulate: Female/*24 - lump right breast - top of underarm - difficult to locate due to natural lumpy bumpy breasts - found another lump - GP says this to be normal - young 24 - several scans - normal - wants to know whether to get checked again ...

Please give a few details for me to assist you more:

Yes I have no pain or any related symptoms I have never undergone an MRI scan nor have I been married or have children yes and 24 the lump is a little difficult to locate it is not Firm but has a slight smooth surface when pressure is applied, it does feel slightly rubbery but then again I do have to take a few minutes to locate it I have had about 4 ultra sound Scans overtime my last appointment was to check a smallish lump found in the right breast my GP said it was completely normal tissue and is aware that I have had passed ultrasound scans

Brief Answer:
Any changes in 9 months?

Detailed Answer:
Thanks fir your feedback.
You are so young to have anything like cancer.
If this would have been any of the serious matter, by this time (since we have been interacting XXXXXXX 2015, almost 9 months) the findings would have been totally different.
If there is no change over these many months, you may please stop worrying.
This may remain the same as a constitutional thing or may change in future depending upon innumerable factors, in fact may change for better.

I was just wondering why would a young female of 24 be so much worried about.
Please enlighten me.
