Hi, Last week, I accidentally slipped in the bathroom floor, the edge of the toilet bowl hit my left breast and my head on the wall. X-ray results were okay, however, my left breast hurt a lot, it was bruised though currently, it is somewhat lightened. My concern is a hard lump that the hit caused, will this probably be a cause of or develop into breast cancer? Thank you.

for the last 5 months have had a dull pain in my right groin area. I do not see any physical change, either by sight or touch however I find that when I sit for a while the area tightens up when I start to walk but as I as walk for a short time then it loosens up.
