I have had a hard lump directly under my right nipple for 5

Customer Question

I have had a hard lump directly under my right nipple for 5 weeks now. I went to my doctor after a week and she didn't seem overly concerned and told me to return in 3 weeks.
It has been longer than that now but I don't want to take time off from work if it is not necessary.
Thanks

You definitely need a mammogram and breast ultrasound
This is standard of care to rule out breast cancer.
Hard lumps need investigated at your age.
