We aren't doctors. We don't know your medical history or your family's history for breast cancer. We don't know your age, whether or not you are pregnant or breastfeeding or recently were pregnant or breastfeeding. We don't know what the lump feels like or how large it is or even how long you've had it.
You need to go to your doctor.
I'm 33 and have had 3 breast lumps. They have all been tumors, but none of them were cancerous. I had to have an ultra sound done on each one. The first lump, when I was 19, looked suspicious so I had to have a biopsy.
None of us are going to be able to tell you whether or not you have cancer. Breast lumps can come and go with your monthly cycle. If you've had an entire period cycle and it's still there (in other words it's been there more than a month) then it's time to go to your doctor.
