Im 17 and yesterday while in the shower i found a lump about the size of a marble under my left nipple. I know it definitley wasnt there before yesterday, it just appeared over night. It feels quite hard when i touch it but it doent hurt, however my left breast does hurt a little bit without touching it. Im really panicking that i have breast cancer but im not sure if it was cancer that a lump that size would just appear over night. Also ive noticed that over the last couple of months ive been extremely tired, and even after sleeping for ten hours im still exhausted and have no energy, im not sure if that would be something to do with the lump.

i had a breast lift a year and a half ago and recently discovered a painful lump in my breast. I have been told by my primary dr that it is in the area of the incision and is not a concern. when I discovered it it was on the underneath side of my breast and has now moved to under the areola, it comes and goes with swelling and redness as well as gets larger then smaller. I have contacted the plastic surgeon as a breast center does not want to deal with it because of the lift and the the surgeon doesn t seem to concerned. what are my options?

I am fifteen years old and yesterday a friend hit my right breast near my nipple really hard. It was very painful (On a scale of 1-10 it would be a 8) and it began to swell. The pain and swelling began to calm down after little bit of time. (About 20 minutes) 24 hours later, my nipple stings and when I push on my breast near the nipple, it is hard. (My left breast is normal and is still soft when pressed on). Should I be concerned?
