Thanks again nbee84 - GP thinks lipoma. Phew.

Thanks, I think it could well be a lipoma.
Was lucky to get an appointment later this morning so will see what GP says.

Could be a lipoma I have 2 - 1 under my armpit, but round towards my back rather than my breast and the other is smaller and on top of my shoulder. I would say it's not worth booking an urgent gp slot but to try and get an appointment in the next week or so to get it checked out.

I will see my GP but how urgently?

I noticed it on Friday. It's quite pronounced compared to the other side, but very soft - if it wasn't so different to the same place on the other side I might assume it was just fat. It's not in my armpit but about 5cm below it, next to my breast. Could it just be a lump of fat? Are 'lumps', benign or otherwise, always firm to the touch?
