very small but hard lump under nipple, should I be concerned?
I have a very small but hard lump (I almost have to search for it to find it again and it doesn't feel like the other somewhat rubbery lumps in my breast) It is under the outermost part of my right nipple.  I was talking to a friend and she said most cancers in someone my age (31) would be found around the armpit area.  Is this true...should I still be concerned?

Dear 31concerned:  Although many breast cancers occur in the outer quadrant of the breast (that's where the greatest amount of breast tissue is), there is no rule about breast cancer, age and location.  Lumps can be many things.  However, a new lump generally requires further investigation.  We recommend that you have your doctor examine this and make appropriate recommendations, if necessary.

Good for you for following up on this. I,too, found a small, hard lump right near the nipple, had a lumpectomy and found it to be cancerous. Not to frighten you, but just to show you the importance of follow up an any suspicious breast lump. Good luck.
