    Today I kept noticing my right breast felt odd when I would have to lean down or to a side.
    Tonight while leaning on my hands I felt a lump. Its rather large. I even had my SO check it out to make sure I wasnt crazy...

    Its about the size of the palm of my hand.
    Im only 21 but my family does have a history of Breast Cancer.

    Should I be worried?

    It's probably no big deal, but please get it checked out, just to put your mind at ease.

    It 'sounds' a little like something I found a few years ago, which wound up ok, but the sooner you make an appointment with your doctor at at a clinic, the sooner your mind will be put at ease. Call first thing in the morning, putting it off will just make the worry nag at you longer.

    Instead of being worried, call your doc, make and appointment and let yourself be reassured by her/him.

    It could be anything, but leaving it there to worry about is the absolute worst thing you can do as stress feeds everything bad in our lives.
