It depends: Any lump in your body requires medical attention for verification and in order to determine its significance and make a correct diagnosis. Breast cancer does occur, although very rarely, in 20 year olds, so I would advise you to get yourself examined or share this info with your family/friends who can support you and make sure that your health is OK
