Breast Lumps in Young Women

A breast lump in a younger woman is less likely to be cancerous than one found in an older woman. But you still need to contact your doctor to discuss your symptoms and arrange an appointment.

Please consider the following questions:

  • Has the lump you are concerned about grown over time?

  • Is the lump in the same place every month?

  • Is the lump present throughout your whole menstrual cycle?

Yes, at least one of these is true for me.

No, none of these are true for me.
