I have a question about a hard bump/lump that I have. It is located above my left breast, about 1 to 1 1/2 inch below my collar bone. It is really hard, and raised up. I can see it just looking in the mirror. It feels almost like a bone. But I don't think it is. It is really hard to describe. It isn't perfectly round, maybe kind of like an oval, about an inch (maybe a little less) in diameter, and it isn't moveable at all.
First you need to make an appointment with your Dr. for a clinical breast exam and most likely some additional testing ... Mammogram (depending on your age) and/or Ultrasound to determine what this lump represents. You should NEVER delay whenever you discover something abnormal in your breasts. Please make that appnt. very soon ... waiting is NOT a wise thing to do and will never solve anything. Regards ...
