My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago and my grandmother passed away from it before her. It is well assumed that my little sister and I are doomed to get it. About five years ago I found a lump in my left breast a little above the nipple region and slightly further to the left. I went and had it examined by a doctor and she said that it was caused by an increase in caffeine consumption. I took it for what it was and went along with my life, but I have noticed this lump again due to my mother's diagnosis. I am 26 years old. The lump is tender sometimes, and my period is not very regular so I cannot link the soreness to my cycle. What do you think it is? Is it true that caffeine can cause lumps? I am afraid that now it had been so long, that if it is something, it will be very progressed...Can I have cancer at 26?
