Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.
At your age and considering the size of it, it is VERY UNLIKELY to be anything serious or anything to worry about.The most definitive test to rule out cancer and to know exactly what this is would be a needle biopsy.I would, therefore, recommend that you should have a needle biopsy done to make sure that the unlikely possibility of this being anything serious is definitively ruled out and your mind is put to rest.This session is open for any further questions that you may have. The only way I am paid here by the website and the money that you have deposited is released is when you rate me.Therefore, I would appreciate a rating.Kindest regards

Thank you Dr, it only hurts when I press on it like a stabbing pain? I am due on my peroid the start of every month?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.
Pain is something that goes against cancer.Pain is usually only a feature of very late stage cancer.So pain is something that actually favors a harmless cause.This session is open for any further questions that you may have. The only way I am paid here by the website and the money that you have deposited is released is when you rate me.Therefore, I would appreciate a rating.Kindest regards

Thank you,maybe the lump has been there for months and I'm at the late stage?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.
In that case the lump would have been much larger and the diagnosis would be very obvious.At your age it is RARE to have breast cancer in any case.Regards
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Thank you Dr have a good day thank you so much for your kindnessLucy
