Most lumps are fribrous tissue, which I have, oddly only in one, but they are tender. Had my mammo this year and nothing suspicious found.

Hopefully that is all there is to it then, gp appointment made for Friday, but the only appointment available was with the young and attactive male doctor blush

I only went to the GP when it got infected and she confirmed what it was and gave me antibiotics which made it disappear. it is now back but only small and no sign of it being infected yet.

Ooh fingers crossed that's all it is, I can cope with that! Did you see your GP about it?

Hi. I have a pea size lump under my breast exactly as you describe. Mine is a sebaceous cyst. It often gets infected and gets bigger due to bra rubbing, but most of the time it is a painless pea size lump

I had one there last year and went to see the GP with it. She said it was a cyst and would go on its own - sure enough it did.

Hope that it's something similar for you but it's always best to get it checked out.

Glad your lump turned out to be nothing gin

Thanks everyone, I'll ring first thing in the morning and get an appointment. It's very small, only about pea sized, but that probably doesn't mean anything. I was hoping that it would go away on its own but since it is still there after a week then I'm going to have to bite the bullet and get it checked <crosses fingers that it miraculously disappears over night>

I had a lump which turned out to be benign last year and my advice is to go to the GP sooner rather than later. I got myself in to a total state about it and didn't go for months when I could have had the whole thing done and dusted much more quickly. 9 out of 10 lumps (I was told) are found to be benign so try not to panic about it. They probably will take it seriously as they have to do so but that doesn't mean it's necessarily going to be anything other than a funny, pesky lump.

Don't feel daft, lala. No GP would ever think it lame to turn up with a suspect lump. Go get your appointment. I'd bet it will be nothing to worry about, but peace of mind's essential.

Thanks sparkle, I'm dreading going to the gp, if it turns out to be nothing I'll feel daft and if they take it seriously I'll panic, there's no hope for me! It seems really obvious to me know that I've found it, so I don't know if it came up quickly or if its been there longer and I didn't notice.

Not stupid at all. Make that appt, go to the gp, they will probably send you up to hospital breast clinic to get it checked out. Almost all breast clinic referrals show whatever the issue is to be absolutely fine, but you do need to get it checked out.

Hi, I am a bit concerned as last week I found a small hard lump underneath my breast, on my bra line really. I thought it might be a spot at first but it is still there and hasn't changed. Has anyone had anything like this? Tomorrow it will be a week since I noticed it, so I'm going to make a gp appointment, I know its probably not anything to worry about but I'm still nervous, stupid i know
