just turned 25 in feb. have never had a mammogram, was doing a breast exam and found a bump it is very small it feels like a pimple (ofcourse its not) just above my nipple. it feels very small smaller than a baby pea. Ofcourse i made an app with my doc but that's not for a few days and i need some comfort. i have no family history of it for heavens sake my mother is 60 and has been a smoker for about 30 years and has never had anything wrong. I dont smoke. i would just like some comfort. I will def let everyone know what it turns out to be as soon as possible thanks..

When I was 12, I seriously thought I had breast cancer because mine weren't all soft and billowy as the other girls (then again, I didn't really have any breasts). However, there was hard tissue present and it worried me cause I was a kid and was incredibly naive.
It can be normal to have some hard tissue in the breast called fibrocystic breast tissue. It tends to show up before your period. Cancerous tissue tends to be harder and 'in tact'. Fibrocystic tissue is still hard but can be easily moved around.
I'm in no way a doctor, but this is what I have learned since my Grade 6 scare. Of course go see a doctor, as you are doing, since breast cancer can be smaller than the size of a pea.
Good luck! I hope only the best for you.

Thank you so much just like you when I was younger my breasts were always hard and never soft like i thought they should be. Im hoping all is well and until then i just have to remain calm

As young as you are, there is a good chance it's just a cyst. I know many women who've had them. Obviously you are doing the right thing by having it fully checked, because cancer can happen at any age.
I sincerely hope it all works out for you! *hug*
