Yes, go see a doctor. It's the wise thing to do. Taking care of your health means checking out things that might be harmful.


Don't be scared though. Lots of women have cysts in their breasts. They're not necessarily cancerous, but it's good to have it checked to make sure.


You will have peace of mind after you see a doctor. Don't be afraid of what the diagnosis might be. Think of it like having your car tuned up (sorry, not an elegant comparison, but it's true). It's something you do regularly so it keeps running well. Same with our bodies. Be smart and make an appointment today.


And I hope you feel better!

My housemate is the same age as me, and she had something that felt like a lump. She had a female doctor at the time, and even though she was only 23 then, they had her have a mammogram. Turned out to be a swollen breast gland, due to hormonal inbalances around the periods. Not a problem but what a relief! Just go to the doctor, especially if your mom had this. They will understand your concern.
