Patient discussion about felting

Q. how can I know if a lump I felt is breast cancer or just a normal one? Yesterday I felt a lump in my right breast, a small one, is there a way to know if it’s cancerous or not? I don’t want to do a lot of fuss over nothing, you know, spending few days going to sea a gynecologist, doing mammography and all that.

A. Your part in self diagnosis ended when you found a lump. Now it’s the Doctors time to check it up.
Here are couple of sites that might help:

I hope it’s not breast cancer.
Good luck
