Does breast tissue feel firmer/bumpier around edges along top when raise arms?no actual lump, same both breasts.Is it where tissue attach to muscle?

Yes, it does.: The breasts are composed of firm glandular tissue and soft fatty tissue with string like tubes converging at the nipple. Together they make the breast tissue feel lumpy and bumpy with hills, valleys and ridges. That is normal.

At your age, an ultrasound is the best test to differentiate lumps that count from those that are not concerning. ...Read more
