Breast lump in one breast, only 19 years old, could this be cancer?

Yes: Get into the habit now. Any dominant mass in the breast needs to be seen without delay by your physician. I'll bet it's benign. But you'd be betting your life versus nothing if you don't get seen.

See your Doctor: While rare, a lump in the breast at 23 could be cancer. Have your regular doctor or care giver examine you and consider an ultrasound to evaluate. Mammograms at your age are often difficult to read. Good luck!
