i am 20 years old and single. Last three days ,my left breast pain. so i check there is something in it . i think it is round . Can i be happen breast cancer? can i meet with doctor? and please answer my question quickly.
At 20, a painful lump is unlikely to be cancer. Most painful lumps represent cysts and often resolve with a menstrual cycle. BUT, it should be checked out. Most women start with their gynecologist or primary care provider.
