  • yes, i had tree hard lumps in my breasts when i was 18 and about to graduate highschool. i had to get them removed and when they were out they told me the lumps were benign tumors. it may very well be a benign tumor which you will want to have removed however it is not harmful at all...they will also do an ultrasound to tell you if it looks cancerous or not...really messed up the end of my senior year though haha, i do have 3 scars on my boobs but they've faded dramatically and i can barely see them

  • Are you breastfeeding by any chance? Or are you pregnant or a new mom? When I was pregnant and even sometimes now ( I am breastfeeding my 8 month old) I get these pinkish looking lumps that are really painful and they last for a few days and then disappear. They pop up even in my armpit sometimes. They are swollen milk glands. So it could be that...which is not dangerous at all...just uncomfortable. Could also be cyst. If you are worried its cancer, it is HIGHLY unlikely.

  • i am glad you are getting it checked out too. please research your bc options on your own...there are strong links b/t synthetic hormones and breast cancer.
