Large lumpy mass in breast

I normally have a feel in the shower but this morning I was awake early and just touched my right boob on the underside. I was lying on my left side so my breast was in a different place I suppose.

I felt quite a large (2" maybe) lumpy mass there. I'm 51, hysterectomy 3 years ago and have been on HRT for 2 years. As a teenager/20's i had quite lumpy breasts and I've always suffered with breast pain with my menstrual cycle. I had a mammogram 2 years ago too, called as my area was running trials on women under 50 - all was normal.

I have no other symptoms, weight is fairly stable and breast isn't misshapen or anything.

I should get it checked shouldn't I ? Even though it's probably nothing.

Yes, it's always better to safe than sorry.

All breast lumps need checking. 9/10 are benign. Urgent appointment on Monday will see you in the breast clinic within 2 weeks. Like you say, it's probably nothing it really is likely to be non- serious but you'll worry if you don't get it confirmed.

Op, please don't leave it. I'm 50 and currently being treated for breast cancer. I had a clear mammo just over a year ago under trial too. My lump was thought to be a cyst but it wasn't. I have been amazingly fortunate with fast surgery and now undergoing active treatment. Please don't ignore it. It's very likely nothing to worry about but don't take that chance. Good luck!

Thanks I'll ring my GP on Monday.
