Question:

I felt a knot on midle of my right breast above the nipple it hepand ower night its hard hwen I touch it Im 28 and I haw been under a lot of stres leatly could you give any gues what it may be?

Answer:

Sometimes one can feel lumps or knots in the breast just before a menstrual period, particularly in young women like you. If you feel this knot has not disappeared in the next few days, please see your family doctor or gynecologist for a clinical breast exam. The chances that this is cancer in a young woman like you is low but any lump that is persistently felt needs to be brought to the attention of your doctor.
