Lump under breast, hard. Why is it increasing? Is it cancer?

Hi, I am a 30 year old male and I felt a lump under my right breast . It s been about two months now and has increased in size, I ve read online that it might not be cancer and would go away in 2 to 3 years. I forgot the exact name now, but the past few days I felt like it s been a little harder to breathe and sometimes I feel a little pain when I eat, stretch , etc. and now I am concerned since it is actually acting up. I am unemployed and have no health insurance, what can I do to help myself so I can breathe better or take care of the chest pain? thank you I can t afford to pay, I thought this was going to be free.... never mind unless you feel kind enough to send me any helpful info to YYYY@YYYY thank you

Hi and welcome to HCM,thank you for your query.
You probbaly meand that it can be fibroadenoma or other cysts and benign lesions but you should not take that risk and you need to at least mamogaphy and ultrasound to rule out maligancies since this is not somehting that should be ignored. Most common this is not cancer but you should confirm this by these diagnostic tests.
Wish you good health. Regards
