Lump on Brest

I have a lump on my breast that is painful.  If I would have breast cancer I would be 5th generation on my mother's side. The lump is close to my nipple and I had a hysterctomy years ago I am on no hormone therapy. I am 38 years old and have no other health coniditions. The painful lump has been present for three days and is not getting any better.  Size has not changed or pain level.  Should I be worried?

Hi,
Early breast cancer is usually painless.
However, given your family history, please consult a doctor quickly for physical examination and investigations (ultrasound breast, FNAC, and perhaps mammogram, although this is usualy advised only after age 40).
Meanwhile, you could take Tylenol for reducing the pain. Well fitting underclothes and warm compress should also sooth the pain.
All the best, and God Bless!
