does this sound normal? adult content

last night i was layin in bed, i had my right arm kinda layin over my head and i felt my breast w/ my left hand. when i touched it i think i felt a lump, but im not sure. so i started to fell around both of my breasts and as i was felling i noticed that if i pushed down on the area all the way around both of my areolas there is a gap between what i guess is my breast tissue and my areola. is this normal? thanx mamas

  • If you're concerned about it there's no harm in having your doctor check it out. Even if it's just to ease your mind.

  • I say go to the dr to be on the safe side. My motto is "Better to be safe then sorry!" I hope it's nothing bad and good luck :o)

  • I would not panic. You could go to your obgyn I they can do an exam & you could go for a mamogram. It's easy & non invasive. Most women have lumpy breasts caused by glands or benign cysts but better safe then sorry.

  • Yes go have it checked out. Then remember to check your self monthly, that way you will know whats normal for you.
