Breast lump: If the lump is hard, the first step could be an ultrasound to determine if the lump is a cyst or a solid mass. If she is 40 weeks pregnant, waiting 1-2 more weeks until after the delivery is an appropriate course of action before doing a mammogram. It is most likely an enlarged milk duct or lymph node, but it is important to follow through. ...Read more

Need exam, bx: A mass usually requires biopsy. At the young age you mention it will usually be benign, such as a fibroadenoma, but medical examination is needed, possibly mammography. Cancer at your age would be unusual. Benign fibroadenomata are more likely at your age, but care has to be exercised and surgical biopsy is probably necessary for identification. Some follow up by md at your age usually safe. ...Read more
