Evaluation?: Needs to be evaluated by a surgeon. Also an ultrasound may be helpful. A birads 4 is concerning. Hope this helps.

Cysts, benign tumor: In my surgical practice, the most common cause of a well-defined breast lump is a cyst. This can easily be differentiated from a tumor by ultrasound or needle aspiration. If the lump is solid, it may be due to a benign tumor (ie, fibroadenoma) or a cancer; the only way to determine this is by tissue diagnosis, which can usually be done by needle-biopsy in the office or breast center.

Highly Unlikely: The incidence of breast cancer at age 20 is one-in-a-million. More than likely what you are feeling is just normal "lumpy-bumpy" tissue aka "fibrocystic changes". I suggest that you see your gyne or primary care dr. For reassurance & to figure out why you've been so sick lately.

Probably Benign: Many breast lumps found on (self) examination are simply "lumpy-bumpy" breast tissue. If a dominant mass is present, it could be a cyst, a benign tumor, or a cancer. It is very difficult to tell the difference by self-examination (although, the presence of many lumps favors "lumpy-bumpy").The best way to differentiate these is to see a breast surgeon and/or undergo evaluation at a breast center.
