Check the other breast.

Some lumpiness is normal.

However, if the lump is new or unusual, it warrants examination by a physician.

A lump found during a breast self-exam, a clinical breast exam or a mammogram does not necessarily mean that a woman has breast cancer.

Nearly 80 percent of all breast lumps are noncancerous (benign).

However, cancer is a possibility.

Early detection and treatment provides the best outcome, so a woman shouldn't let fear stop her from seeing a physician.
