Lump in Breast.... Again...

In 2001, when I first got married (age 22) I found a lump in my breast.  Cancer does not run in my family, so I wasn't worried... But, went to doc because it HURT LIKE CRAZY..... Turned out to be a benign cyst and I had it surgically removed.

Fast forward to 2012 (age 34) and now I have another mass....... Again, not worried about cancer, but do I bother going to doc again, or assume it's another benign cyst and just deal with pain.  I mean, I have had that surgery, 2 C-sections, and I am tired of "going under the knife"...... Ignore or Reveal to Doc?

I mean, I'm not yet at the age for mammograms.... so.... I have my annual GYN visit in November, so..... I could wait, but it does hurt QUITE bad...... (FYI: it's the same breast as before)

Maybe just go in for mammogram earlier then planned just in case.
