I found a lump in my breast. What do I do?

I found a lump! Now what?!

First, congratulations on performing your monthly self-exams. The sooner your find a lump, the higher your rates of survival. Second, take a deep breath because 80% of the lumps found are not cancerous (benign). Third, call your doctor and make an appointment as soon as possible. The only way to know if your breast lump is cancerous is to have a biopsy. Fourth, depending on your lab results you and your doctor will figure out a game plan.
